I don’t know what this photo of Roger Federer and his mini-mes is all about (Nike ad?), but I love it! More! More! More!
Speaking of kids, a little from Roger Federer at yesterday’s press conference:
Q. How do you think family life has affected your goals and your ambitions as a player?
ROGER FEDERER: I mean, in terms of goals, not much has changed. My ranking is still at the very top or, you know, near top. I was No. 2 when Mirka’s pregnant, No. 1 when they were born. They stay extremely high, you know.
It’s not always a lot of fun, but I’m happy. I almost have to aim so high, you know, staying No. 1 in the world, trying to win the Grand Slams, trying to win here in Miami. It’s just something that I’ve gotten used to over the last seven years really, to aim extremely high.
I think my game is where I want it to be, so it hasn’t stopped me off practicing hard or having not enough focus on the match court. For this reason, I’m very happy with my setup.
You know, Mirka obviously takes care of all the big work, and I try to help as much as I can from my side. But it’s an amazing time for me right now. You know, the girls are a bit over eight months, and I like to spend as much as time as possible with them.
I also love tennis, of course, so it’s a great balance and great life for me at the moment.
