Roger Federer private: Two double hits for tennis star! His family makes him happy
How did it happen Roger Federer actually in the tennis-Olympus? Like other tennis greats, Roger Federer, who was born the son of a South African and a Swiss, was already on the tennis court as a boy - but only as a teenager was the Swiss first success in his home country. At the age of 13, the young athlete was already on the pitch in the promotion program "Tennis Etudes" before he left school at the age of 16 to focus entirely on tennis.

The tennis world brought Roger Federer great luck not only professionally but also privately: At the 2000 Olympic Games in Australia, the Swiss met his Slovakian-born tennis colleague Miroslava Vavrinec and fell in love with the athlete. Nine years later, in April 2009, the wedding bells rang for Roger Federer and his girlfriend Mirka, since then renamed the 41-year-old under the name Miroslava Federer -Vavrinec. Together, the couple has four children - while the Klapperstorch struck twice in the double! In July 2009, just months after the wedding, Mirka and Roger Federer became parents of twin girls Charlene Riva and Myla Rose. Five years later, twins, this time two guys named Leo and Lennart, saw the light of day and made the six of them family complete by Roger Federer. Incidentally, the double blessing of the family seems to be in the genes of the Federer family. Roger Federer's sister Diana also became a mother of twins a few years ago.
