Some pictures from the camp were shared on Twitter by a fan account of the 20-time Grand Slam champion ‘happy birthday roger ❤ @DorkererStan’ In the pictures seen, the Federer kids are seen training with other kids and look quite happy to be in the camp.

Federer has spoken about his family life in recent interviews, saying that if his wife was not able to manage their kids on her own, he would have retired by now and credited her with helping him being able to continue and focus on his career.

During the lockdown and his recent recovery from surgery, he has been at home in Switzerland with his family. Camp organizer Philippe Bruchez told the BLICK, “Roger and his family stayed with us for a week. The four children took part in tennis training practically every day.

They are like other children their age. That is why you are here. Here they are normal boys and girls. ” In a recent interview to Miami Living Magazine, Federer said, “We’ve been chasing around after the kids the best we can on our own, but I think this strange time has given us a chance to reflect and take stock of what really matters, which is family, friends, health, and happiness.”

In an earlier interview, Federer had said he was not sure if he wanted his kids to play tennis since he knew how hard it was to make it on the tour and also because he did not want to spend more number of years on the tour but added that he would be happy to support them in whatever they choose.”

Federer is married to former WTA player Mirka Federer, whom he met while they were competing for Switzerland at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Mirka retired from the tour in 2002 due to a foot injury. The couple were married in April 2009.

In 2009, the couple had their first set of identical twins (girls) and in 2014, they had another pair of identical twins (this time boys).

 

 

 

Roger Federer, who turns 39 years old on 8th August, underwent a surgery for his knee in February and then underwent another procedure in June for the same injury.

 

Due to the injury, he has said that he will not play again this year and will return to the circuit in 2021. Federer has won 20 Grand Slam singles titles in his career, more than any other player in men’s tennis history. He is currently ranked No. 4 in the world.

“Good Person”: Rafael Nadal Opens up on His Relationship With Rival Novak Djokovic

Published

on

Many tennis fans wonder how Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic get along outside the tennis court. Their conduct towards each other on the tennis court is always respectful, and that translates outside the court as well, as admitted by Nadal. The Spaniard spoke about his relationship with Djokovic, whom he called a good person.

“I have a good relationship with him. Is a good person. We must relativize things between us,”  Nadal said, in a recent interview, throwing light on his camaraderie with Djokovic.

There was also speculation among fans as to what Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic spoke about at the end of their French Open 2020 final. Interestingly, it was one of the most one-sided battles they have played over the years. However, Nadal said that Djokovic, with whom he shares a strong relationship, simply congratulated him and nothing more.

Rafael Nadal understands why Novak Djokovic did not say much

I could not talk to him. He congratulated me on the track and that’s it. It is normal,” Nadal said. He said he understands that Djokovic was not in a mood to talk, as no one usually is, after a heartbreaking loss.

When you lose a game like that, you don’t really want to talk. I understand it,” Nadal added.

Nadal avenged his one-sided loss in the 2019 Australian Open final against Djokovic. The two men also shared a respectful exchange during the trophy ceremony post their match. Nadal lauded Djokovic and said he hopes to keep facing him, further adding to their already great rivalry.

What you’re doing in tennis is very very special. Hope to keep facing you [Djokovic] on the court for the next couple of years,” Nadal said to Djokovic.

The mutual respect between the two stars

Despite not having a conversation with Nadal after the match, Djokovic spoke highly of Nadal in his post-match presser. Djokovic highlighted why Nadal is a great champion. He also admitted that it was one of those days where Nadal was simply the better player and there was not much he could do to tame the ‘King of Clay’.

I was also thinking that these conditions are more favorable to me. I was feeling great throughout the tournament playing. […] But, yeah, I mean, Rafa has proven everybody wrong. That’s why he’s a great champion. He just played a fantastic match today,” he said.

The two champions are expected to resume their rivalry at the ATP Finals next month. While they will not face each other in the Round Robin stage, the anticipation of another Nadal-Djokovic final is already running high.
