The former tennis pro met her husband at the 2000 Summer Olympics
MIRKA Federer has been at her husband Roger’s side as he has conquered the tennis world and rewritten the record books.
Here’s everything you need to know about the woman behind the most successful male player of all time…
Who is Mirka Federer?
Mirka represented Switzerland during her tennis career, but she’s actually Slovak-born.
The 39-year-old is known for being an Olympian and has participated at all of the Grand Slam venues.
She is married to tennis ace Roger Federer.
After a foot injury, the 38-year-old sportswoman retired.
She then began working as 34-year-old Roger’s public relations manager.
During important tennis matches, Mirka can usually be spotted in the crowd cheering on her husband.
What are Mirka Federer’s biggest sporting achievements?
Mirka has competed at the US Open, Wimbledon, the French Open and the Australian Open.
At these Grand Slam events, she won four matches out of nine.
The Olympian and tennis star was victorious at three major events in Tel Aviv, Klosters-Serneus and Clearwater, USA.
She also won a tournament in Langenthal, Switzerland in 1993.
How long has Mirka been married to Roger Federer?
The happy couple first met at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, where they were both competing.
They tied the knot at Wenkenhof Villa in Basel in April 2009.
The pair didn’t opt for a lavish affair, instead choosing an intimate ceremony and only inviting close family and friends.
How many children do Mirka and Roger Federer have?
Swiss-born Mirka decided to take on a less high profile role after giving birth to the couple’s two sets of twins.
The Federer couple have six-year-old twin girls Charlene and Myla and two-year-old boys Lenny and Leo.
Speaking shortly after the birth of his sons, Roger said Mirka is the reason that the family are able to travel the world.
He said: “My wife does a lot of work, as much as she can. And I try to help as much as I can.
“We have the grandparents as well and all my team members, they sometimes just tag along.
“Clearly we also need some help on the road, so Mirka can have an opportunity sometimes to sleep in a little bit, or come to watch one of my matches.
“You need to be well organised, but by now we know how it works.”
