Roger did not suffer much the farewell to this sport, initially maybe a little but after he began his new life and appeared enthusiastic. The former tennis player also talked about the relationship between the four children and tennis: "I don’t know if they will become champions or not, but I’m happy that all four like to play tennis.

The twins play 3-4 times a week while the boys are still young and in them I feel the desire to become champions. However, we talk about a long process, we do not climb Everest in a single night, in general I appreciate that they do physical activity".

Roger Federer is very happy

These days the Swiss champion Roger Federer has returned to the center of attention of world tennis. The former 20-time Slam champion has left tennis for a few years and these days has presented the docufilm 'The last twelve days', event that will be staged on Amazon Prime from next June 20th.

Roger talked about what his life is like now and his typical day without tennis: "I wake up early and go to the gym, then I help the kids get ready for school. I am happy to be able to take time to keep fit, I try to play tennis, both with my children and with my friends and then I dedicate myself to the foundation and my sponsors.

In general my life is very good, I sleep less and spend a lot of time with my children, especially in Switzerland. I am participating in various projects, like this one by Amazon, I waste a lot of energy in this and I’m happy about it". Federer has explained in recent days that tennis is not everything and that life is bigger than a tennis court, the Swiss managed to manage without any particular problems the goodbye to tennis and it is not easy for a champion of such stature.
