The professional men's player - who is off to Canberra on Tuesday for an International Tennis Federation $25,000 event - has been playing the lawn open for the past three years and enjoyed venturing out to the south-west.

"There's probably a lot less pressure (in Warrnambool), it's a relaxed atmosphere here, there's live music, people besides the court and a great crowd always helps," he said.
"That release of pressure probably makes it easier to play good tennis. It's great to come back and get a weekend away."
He said his performance on Monday was strong and good preparation for Canberra..
"I felt like I played really, really well," he said.
"Josh is a great player and I knew if he got going early it'd be tough, so luckily I got off to a good start and managed to continue it."

The teenager had plenty of local support as she reached finals in the 14 and under singles, 14 and under mixed doubles and 14 and under doubles events.
In a fantastic performance in the 14 and under singles grand final, the young gun clinched the title with an 8-4 win against Adele Joseph, pulling away after being 3-3 at one point.
It is McNamara's first singles title at the Warrnambool tournament.
"I'm so proud, especially being on my home courts, I'm really happy, but pretty tired," she said after the match.
"It was a real good hit. It was my fifth match of the day.
"Usually on weekends I have to travel all around the state so it's good to be at my home club playing and it's nice to have a win here."
