Roger Federer has a very "big family", made up of four children - two eight-year-old girls and two four-year-old boys -. An 'organized chaos', this is how Federer described the situation, as 'girls are at an age where they want to boss around the boys, and the boys are at an age where they can now defend themselves.
'Sometimes we have to be the umpires', he admitted. When he says "we", he also refers to his wife Mirka, who covered a very important part of his life and tennis career. Mirka was a top 80 ranked tennis player, and knows how it feels to suffer setbacks or disappointments: 'In moments of doubt, I could go to her and ask her how she really felt, if she believed I could come back again', the 36-year-old admitted.
'Without her, things would have turned out very differently.' Here is a photo of young Federer: ALSO READ: World's Most Famous Athletes: Roger Federer's ranking position revealed .
