Roger Federer has enough time for family – Who are the twins and wife Mirka?

Miroslava, better known by her nickname Mirka, Vavrinec was born behind the Iron Curtain in 1978. At the age of two she moved with her parents to Switzerland to build a better life there. In their own words, the family in the Alpine country was relatively poor.

As an eight-year-old girl, Vavrinec met the greatest tennis legend from her native country. She started playing tennis partly because of Martina Navratilova. Later, the eighteen-time Grand Slam winner sent the girl a racket.

Mirka turned out to be quite good at tennis and started playing matches at a professional level. Vavrinec, who played under the Swiss flag, won three ITF tournaments and was on nine Grand Slams. She achieved her best result at the US Open in 2001, when she reached the third round. That ensured her best place in the ranking ever: place 76.

Federer and Vavrinec meet at the Olympics. The rumors of love in the Olympic village turn out to be true in the case of Roger and Mirka. The 18-year-old Roger and the 21-year-old kissed on the last day of the Games. “She thought I was still so young,” Roger said of this moment. “I said I am eighteen and a half years old. I lied about it for a quarter of a year.”

In 2002, the couple in love played a professional match together. In the Hopman Cup, a friendly tournament prior to the season, the two Swiss played a mixed doubles match together. Later that year, Vavrinec would end her tennis career due to an ongoing foot injury.

Apart from tennis she certainly did not hit. As a friend of the new tennis phenomenon Roger Federer, she ensured the business success. She traveled with her boyfriend on the Tour as a Public Relations Manager.

Family Expansion
In 2009 the couple married in a villa near Basel. The couple did not have a party with hundreds of guests, but a small ceremony with close friends and family. Mirka was already pregnant with their first child during this wedding.
