Roger Federer asks for privacy, wants to protect his children

For Roger Federer, family is the priority. The Swiss player tries to spend as most time as possible with his dear ones, including his four children and his wife Mirka. He cares about them a lot, that's why he would like to have privacy when he enjoyes relaxing moments with them.

'Mobile phones can definitely be a problem sometimes', he admitted in an interview with Credit Suisse. 'I can understand it when fans pull out their phones to take a photo of me – they might never see me again and want to seize the opportunity.

But, as a family man, I get really annoyed when somebody takes a photo of my children without asking.' Federer is loved and admired by his fans, but he doesn't want to be a role model in everything: 'There are many things that others understand better than me, so I don't need to know everything.

If you freely express your opinion, you will offend many people. This is why there are topics that I don't speak about publicly and that belong to my private life. I also don't want people to think a certain way just because Roger Federer does.' ALSO READ: Kei Nishikori: 'Rafael Nadal is in another league. Federer...'
