Roger Federer's family can play all forms of tennis; Here's how

Friday, September 4, 2020 • Tamil Sport News Comments

20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer is arguably one of the greatest Tennis players in history. He got married to Mirka Federer in 2009 and the couple was blessed with four kids - two sets of twins. It has been noted by people that the kids of the Tennis champion and the former Tennis player (Mirka) can play all forms of Tennis, owing to the unique diversity in the family.

Mirka Federer gave birth to identical twin girls - Myla Rose and Charlene Federer on 23rd July, 2009, the same year the couple got married. They welcomed a second set of identical twins - sons Leo and Lennart "Lenny" Federer, on May 6, 2014. Although it is too early to be certain if the kids will consider Tennis as a career option, it has been observed that, hypothetically, the twins can play all forms of Tennis, including Men's singles, Women's singles, Men's doubles, Women's doubles, and Mixed doubles. Speaking about his kids in an interview with the Vogue, Federer had earlier said, "I feel very fortunate I can travel with them around the world and I discovered the cities now from a different angle. They are so cute, well-educated, they like traveling, they get excited when they go on a plane or when they come to the zoo or even tennis with me. I never saw myself in a vision as a tennis player and father and husband at the same time. For me it was like, Hopefully, I would win Wimbledon one day, I would be No. 1 one day and probably have a girlfriend. I used to sometimes (mix up the kids) if I couldn't see their face right away. But no, nowadays I'm a pro. Of course, I can tell them apart."

With 8 Wimbledon titles, Federer holds the record for most Wimbledon Championships won. He earned a Doubles Olympic Gold Medal in 2008 at the Beijing Games with Stanislas Wawrinka and won a Singles Olympic Silver Medal at the London Games in 2012.
