The following note appeared on Roger’s Official Website:
I arrived in Indian Wells earlier this week and I am eager to get back out on court. My back is feeling much better and I am ready to go.
I also have some really awesome news to share with all of you: Mirka and I are excited to let you know that we will be parents this summer! Mirka is pregnant and we are so happy to be starting a family together. This is a dream come true for us. We love children and we are looking forward to being parents for the first time. Mirka is feeling great and everything is going well.
Speak soon and thanks for all your continued support!
Congrats Roger and Mirka!!! Never a dull moment in the Federer camp that’s for sure. I wonder what influence this will have on his career. It’s an added responsibility and will be an adjustment for sure. Will it inspire him to even greater heights? Maybe this is the change Roger needs after all. Children does seem to make people look differently at life. Hopefully Roger will feel like he now has even more to play for and win many more grand slams instead of losing motivation.
