Interview from Blick mag ....

He speaks about the twins and quarrels with Mirka

He is the king on the court but also a loving father and a husband. Now Roger Federer allows us to have an insight into his private life, speaks about quarrels with Mirka, the upbringing of his children and the next chapter of his life.

Roger Federer on Charlene and Myla Rose

"The twin girls will soon become 2 years old and it's high time to take care about their future and education", Roger Federer says in an interview for Blick. At present he and his wife Mirka (33) think about their future residence. One possibility is at Lake Zurich. For the two of them is important that Charlene and Myla grow up as normally as possible. "This will be a challenge", Federer says. Nevertheless he is certain that "in Switzerland one doesn't stand out". A visit to the garden terrace is not a problem. "The whole family can relax and go have a drink. People leave you alone, there is no crowd."

Maybe exactly because the Federers have remained so down to earth, Roger doesn't want to be surrounded by bodyguards. "Not even when Mirka goes out alone with the kids. This would be counterproductive", he says. They visit Parks with Myla and Charlene 1-2 times daily. "For me it's extremely important that they have contact with other kids, even though being twins they are never lonely. I am glad that they are not shy but rather outgoing."

Even Papa Roger has occasional troubles to distinguish the two of them. "Sometimes I need to look twice", he says and explains the difference: "It's difficult to say if it's the shape of the head, the eyes, the cheeks. But I've also already confused the kids, once I thought for a minute that I had Myla on my knees, it turned out to be Charlene. It is particularly difficult with pictures: "It becomes complicated if just one of them is in the picture and if you don't see her in 3D. That's why we must be careful when we make our photo albums. This can quickly turn into a mess."

There will be probably again many photos of the twins from the family vacation at Wimbledon. (Perhaps he means the vacation after Wimbledon??) The vacation is extremely important to him, Roger says. "It is very busy in the house at Wimbledon. You cook, you clean, you have the stress of the matches, the pressure. Then you are dead tired. That's why after that we are really alone. We go through with this rigorously."

But he is all alone only when he sits in the car. That's enough for him. "For me alone means with Mirka", Roger says. "I'd rather be together with people. I have seldom been alone in my life."
Roger Federer on quarrels with Mirka

It's misunderstandings that lead to quarrels, says Roger. Then he discusses everything. "Not to speak with each other is something like the beginning of the end." Problems don't scare him. It was different before because he wanted to avoid unpleasant things. "Today I solve them."

Roger Federer about his 30th birthday

He is not afraid of getting older. He feels much more uncomfortable if there are surprise parties: "I am not a person who should have a big party. I'm rather shy, I don't like being the centre of attention. On the court yes. That's my world. But for me surprise parties are rather uncomfortable."

He speaks french but you have the translation in english here ....

RF :

Perhaps it's a great gift for him that I beat Novak, still, because he's on four consecutive losses against Novak. Playing against Rafa, my main rival is always super. Another grand slam final… it's for those moments we live as tennis players… He still did a great tournament in the end even though people thought he had forgotten to play tennis. He's there and it will be a very difficult final.



RF (continued) :

I really like to play against Novak because every time it's super athletic with great points being played so it was a treat for me. It's because of him that the match was so good.

CP :

(to the crowd) he's a great champion… and now you will face another great champion and old acquaintance… Rafa in the finals sunday… Pronostic?

RF :

Is that his birthday today?

CP :

Yes, it's not sunday, it's today.


RF :

Yes, the first set was monstrous. I think we both were a little bit tired after in the second because honestly the rhythm was unbelievable and it's clear I had a little bit of luck because he had two set points but it usually comes down to a couple of points when we play each other. There is little missing in our matches. I had match points against him at the US Open and afterwards in Australia it was super close too even though it was straight sets and again tonight.



RF (continued) : It's been a pleasure playing against him. I've played some great matches but it's one of the best we played against each other…

(the match) ended at night with such an ambiance so I think it was really something extraordinary.

CP :There was a lot of important moments during the entire match… but do you think having won the first set was determinant for the continuation?



CP :

Also, I don't know if John McEnroe is around here but we'll give him a wink because you're the first player to beat Novak this year and so you're keeping his record of 42 consecutive victories alive. Do you think he'll offer you a little bottle of champagne for example?

RF :

Honestly, I don't need that. I told Novak at the net that his winning streak, even if

it's not the longest ever… today, it's so physical and so professional… what he just accomplished is just incredible.


Cedric Pioline :

I don't know about you but I've got goosebumps from standing in this ambiance… it's craziness.

Roger Federer :

Yeah, me too… and it's not even the finals!

CP :

Before talking about the match itself, it's for moments like that we play tennis… to get to the finals… for this ambiance…?

RF :

Clearly. I've trained all my life for this kind of match. There was a lot of pressure on Novak and I think he played really well.
