After cruising into the Australian Open quarter-finals with a 6-2 6-1 6-4 victory against 15th-seeded Belgian David Goffin, Federer, in an interview, spoke about the advices he get from his twin six-year-old daughters Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, reports

The 34-year-old tennis champ spoke about the very unusual advice his children passed on to him to mix it up a little on court.

'Yeah, the one thing in tennis they tell me is I should ... play on the lines. They think that's a good thing. I was like, 'OK, I'll try that,'' the 34-year-old father of four explained.

'The other one said that maybe you should look that way and play the other way. I said, 'OK, I'll try that, too. It's not as easy as you think it is, but I'll try,' he added.
