Roger Federer: My wife and children are having a blast while I am working

Roger Federer has traveled to Shanghai with his wife Mirka and all their four children. On Friday, Mirka and twins Leo and Lenny, daughters Myla and Charlene, visited Disneyland Park in the Chinese city. On Thursday, all of them attended Roger's third-round match against Roberto Bautista Agut.

In press conference, Federer was asked if seeing them watching him play encouraged him further. 'I’m not sure if they give me more courage fighting on court, but they were here today,' Federer admitted. 'I was telling myself, like, particularly tonight I cannot do this because they were there, but I don’t know how much I draw from that, quite honestly.

They are enjoying themselves in Shanghai. They have been on the road for a long time now, almost three months now, ever since we went to America. They haven’t been back to Switzerland. So I think we are looking forward to go home again.

They told me only positives. Mirka is super happy to be back here again. She hasn’t been here for 10 years. She’s over the moon, and she’s seeing Shanghai change and grow, you know, in the last 10 years. They are having a great time, you know.

Yesterday went to Disneyland, so everything’s good there. They are having a blast while I’m working. It’s all good.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
