Roger Federer spoke of one of the most important people in his life and one who has participated enormously in making him the champion that he is on the one hand by his support and on the other hand for having played his role as wife and mother to perfection, We’re talking about his wife Mirka.

His real name is Miroslava Vavrinec, Mirka is a former tennis player who has been living in Basel since 2009 and the couple have had four children together.

Behind every great man there is a woman and this adage applies perfectly to Switzerland which did not hesitate to praise his wife: "It was at the Sydney Olympic Games that we met, when I had not yet obtained any title.

She has helped me through difficult times and has played a crucial role in my motivation. She also taught me what discipline is because it is extremely strict; I needed to be encouraged in this area. Of course, during the second part of my career, She also put in a lot of effort with the kids to make sure that everything worked while we were running the circuit; the logistics were amazing and she was exceptional in that regard.”

The Big 3 broke many records

During a recent interview with Eurosport, Mats Wilander opened up on the Big 3: “I think with Roger and Rafa, the greatness, you could see it. You could see it in the shot, in the technique. Everybody wants to play like Roger Federer. With Novak, he hits the ball like most other pros.

It’s just that he hits his backhand like other pros that have the best backhand in the game, and he hits his forehand like all the other pros that have the best forehands in the game, and he hits his serve in the same spots as Roger Federer, who had the best serve in the game. Federer has a weakness. Nadal has weaknesses. Djokovic doesn’t really have a weakness.”
