‘Maybe we’ll break up’: Roger Federer hails wife’s stunning sacrifice

Roger Federer has hailed wife Mirka’s remarkable sacrifices for his career, revealing they may have broken up if she pursued her tennis career rather than retiring.

Roger and Mirka met at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney when they were playing tennis together for Switzerland

Mirka was a top-100 player but retired in 2002 due to persistent injuries.



Mirka would go on to become Federer’s manager before stepping down from that role to look after their four children.

“She has been wonderful in terms of support,” Federer told The Times recently.



“It was amazing how easily she walked away from tennis and retired, never really tried to come back.”

The Swiss Maestro couldn’t praise Mirka enough for her selfless act, forgoing her own tennis career to help him become one of the greatest players of all time.




Imitating Mirka, Federer said: “You know what, I’d rather have helped you have an amazing career (than) me having some kind of a career and we won’t see each other and we’ll grow unhappy and maybe we’ll break up because we won’t see each other enough.”

“We just love our time together and that’s still the case.”




Roger and Mirka married in 2009 and have since had two sets of twins – Myla and Charlene, 10, and Leo and Lenny, 6.

Mirka and the kids follow Federer all over the world to watch him play, constantly spotted courtside during his matches.
