Federer Father To Twin Girls
by ATP Staff 24.07.2009
Roger Federer is the proud father of twin girls after his wife, Mirka, gave birth on Thursday night.
“I have some exciting news to share with you,” Federer revealed on his official website, RogerFederer.com, and Facebook pages. “Late last night, in Switzerland, Mirka and I became proud parents of twin girls.
“We named them Myla Rose and Charlene Riva and they are both healthy and along with their mother they are doing great. This is the best day of our lives.”
The couple met when they competed for Switzerland at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. There were married on 11 April this year in Basel.
Federer, the ATP World Tour No. 1, clinched a record 15th Grand Slam championship title at The Championships, Wimbledon, earlier this month.
The 27 year old is scheduled to return to competitive tennis at the Rogers Masters, an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 hard-court tournament in Montreal, on 12 August.
