PseudoFed: Great Day mates!

Not Roger Federer writes for The Tennis Space:
Hello from Down Underneath. We have arrived fans. I stopped off in the Singapore on the way here. I must make the admissions that the journey took longer than it appeared as it’s already Summer here?! It seems like only a few days ago I was celebrating the coming of 2013 (a year). I think this means I missed the French Open. It is no loss really, I never have liked it as playing on clay is too slow as the margins are very fat. Not really a surface for the ultimate professional.
I have been told that Rafa is still on his vacation. It’s been a long one. I am assuming he will be made to start his career again working his way through challengers before he reaches the Ivy League.
Now, can we all remember why we are here please. Australia is a great country to visit, the shopping is great, fine wines, the barbies, the nature, the beaches, and of course best of all are the people. They are so down to earth. Although for Me this is a little shock of the cultures. Whilst here we may as well play some tennis too. There isn’t much to say about this other than agreeing that we all would like Mr. Australia to bear in mind that I have reached a certain level, a certain, Je ne sais GOAT. So having Djokovic, Murray (Andrew, his brother, mother and any cousins) and Del Potro on the opposite side to me is best.
Anyway look, a lot of words have been spoken about many tennis players in the newspapers and on the television sets. We do see each other a lot on the tour, although I do My best not to socialize too much. I don’t want them making too much confidences. But when we’re on court, during the break sitting in our little chairs, eating the bananas (fruit) and having the ball servants hold the umbrellas for us, no matter whether we socialize or not, it is like we are neighbours. And we can all agree that everybody needs good neighbours. Neighbours should be there for one another, That’s when good neighbours, become good friends.
As they say in Australia, Great Day mates!
