Who is Mirka Federer?

Federer’s wife represented Switzerland during her tennis career, but was actually born in Slovakia before emigrating at the age of two.

She is known for being an Olympian and has participated at all four Grand Slam venues.

After failing to recover from a persistent foot injury, Mirka became Federer’s public relations manager and handled much of his media affairs.

Mirka has been in the crowd for all of Federer’s greatest moments although in recent years she has been forced to miss the occasional match due to pregnancy.

The happy couple first met at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, where they were both competing.

They tied the knot at Wenkenhof Villa in Basel, Federer’s hometown, in April 2009.

How many children do Mirka and Roger Federer have?

Mirka decided to take on a less high profile role after giving birth to the couple’s two sets of twins.

The Federer couple have nine-year-old twin girls Charlene and Myla and five-year-old boys Lenny and Leo.

Speaking shortly after the birth of his sons, Roger said Mirka is the reason that the family are able to travel the world.

He said: “My wife does a lot of work, as much as she can. And I try to help as much as I can.

“We have the grandparents as well and all my team members, they sometimes just tag along.

“Clearly we also need some help on the road, so Mirka can have an opportunity sometimes to sleep in a little bit, or come to watch one of my matches.

“You need to be well organised, but by now we know how it works.”
