Federer likes to play ping-pong with his children
In 2022, Roger Federer revealed that he used to play ping-pong with his kids.
"I haven't taught my kids to play cards yet, but they're already doing pretty well at Uno. During the pandemic, I spent two whole weeks with them building Harry Potter's castle with Legos. Then we set up a mini ping pong table and enjoyed playing together," Federer told Eurosport.
