Roger Federer regularly travels around the world with his four children and wife Mirka. During the Asian trip in Shanghai and Tokyo, Federer was with his team and his parents, mother Lynette and father Robert, as well as he did at the French Open earlier this year and in Cincinnati.
The Basel native spoke about the challenges behind this lifestyle. “That’s the secret, to make it work. There were not too many players who had families when i started having it. It’s a huge task, so massive and so huge, which is fun but it can be difficult.
My wife puts a lot of energy and a lot of know how strategy because she has been doing it for over 20 years. We need to be very careful and clever with my wife, how many tournaments to play, which ones to play, where to take the kids.
By correctly. Because you do not want to have a lot of regrets. So as long as the kids have a good time on Tour, it’s also okay for me to keep playing. The moment I will feel that they are not happy travelling anymore, I will not want to leave them at home alone.
My family is my No. 1 priority, it’s always been clear for me.” “I do not know when it’s gonna end”, added Federer. “So my preparation when it comes to my fitness and practice is only based about the unknown which means I am planning to play all over the year.” Federer will play the Swiss Indoors in Basel next.
