Roger Federer's wife Mirka is back to watch a tennis match live of his husband. The 41-year-old was on the grounds for the second round robin meeting between the 20-time Grand Slam winner and the Italian Matteo Berrettini at the ATP Finals in London.
Mirka had last attended a match at the Laver Cup in Geneva with the four children. Many fans wrote they are happy that Mirka came back. She is doing well and she is not pregnant again, had said Roger's father Robert some weeks ago.
Mirka's support was very important on Thursday when Roger faced Novak Djokovic in an all in match. Federer spoke about how it felt to beat Djokovic for the first time since 2015: "I didn't know I hadn't beaten him in a few years, actuall.
Didn't feel that way because it was so close in Paris and in Wimbledon against him. I realized I hadn't beaten him since my knee operation [in 2016]. I heard that today. I'm just happy at the level I could play today, and obviously it's always special beating Novak, even more so [because] of what happened, but I didn't feel like I had to get rid of the ghosts or anything like that.
I feel like I moved on pretty quickly after that. I have been playing very well this season, and I think this victory proves that today", concluded the Basel native.
