Behind a great man there is always a great woman, and that’s definitely the case when it comes to Roger Federer and his wife Mirka Vavrinec. The two met at 2000 Sydney Olympics, then got married in April 2009, became parents for the first time of two daughters in the same year in August and now, after almost a nine-year marriage, their relationship is as solid as ever.
In the last days the Romanian website One had published some photos of Mirka relaxing alone on the beach in Sardinia, Italy, last summer in July, when there was also Roger and his four children. More holidays are coming for the couple, as Federer won’t come back to compete before June on grass.
‘We were already a rock-solid couple and we had a great time’, Federer said recalling when they played the 2002 Hopman Cup together. ‘Unfortunately, she was quite hurt, that’s why then she ended up being retired at a too young of an age but it was a great week and was slightly awkward playing with your girlfriend at the time, but we got through it and had a good time after all.’
