Roger Federer’s decision to return to tennis a week after the birth of his second set of twins has the full support of his wife Mirka. And don’t expect his schedule to change much now that he has four kids.
When the boys were born earlier than expected, Federer consulted with his wife and team about playing the Italian Open.
“And they all said I should quickly come and play here. So I was like, ‘OK, if you don’t want me around I’ll go away,” Federer recounted on Tuesday. “That was basically it.”
“Things went well, the boys are healthy. Mirka’s good, too,” the 17-time Grand Slam champion added. “So it’s a great time in our lives right now.”
