Without his wife and twin daughters not around this week in Rotterdam for his indoor title defence, it's beginning to feel a lot like the Australian Open for Roger Federer.
Though the family was along for that Melbourne Grand Slam outing last month, the rhythm of always playing night matches at both events seems much the same to the Swiss world No.2, who is bidding for a third title at the Dutch venue.
"It's quiet and of course I miss them, but I sleep so much better," confessed the 31-year-old, "Actually, this feels just like Australia. I have breakfast around noon, lunch 5 p.m. and dinner at 11 p.m. after the match."
Besides his post-match media duties, Federer also needs hours for recovery and keeping his body in fine-tuned shape, a regime which doesn't allow him to bed much before 2 a.m. "I sleep till 11 a.m.," he told local media, It's cold outside, so I try as best as possible to sleep a long time."
