Australia seems to agree with Roger Federer. He is looking quite relaxed as he has been doing some sightseeing with his family since arriving in the Land Down Under. According to ATP World Tour on Dec. 29, the world number six player has been spotted doing some cuddling with a koala and relaxing with his family before the Brisbane International begins this week.

The Swiss enjoyed the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary on Sunday morning with his pregnant wife Mirka and their twin daughters. The sweet koala named Tinkerbell seemed to take to the 17-time Grand Slam champion quite well. Who could blame her? She clung onto him as he answered some questions from the media.

The 32-year-old tennis great has been doing some touring taking in the sights in Brisbane. He has a busy week ahead before the Brisbane International begins on Monday. This is the Fed’s first time playing here and he seems to be excited about it. He is also ready to take on either James Duckworth or Jarkko Nieminen for his opening match. The newest member of Federer’s team, tennis legend Stefan Edberg, has been working with him to get him strong enough to win some titles this coming year.

In the meantime, Roger Federer seems to look more relaxed, confident, and ready to get his racket warmed up. It will definitely be another exciting year of tennis ahead, especially if he can be strong enough to take on the world's top three tennis players. Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray are the ones to beat.
