Federer Marries Girlfriend Mirka on Saturday in Switzerland


Posted on April 11, 2009

Roger Federer decided to play next week's Masters Monte Carlo at the last moment. Today the Swiss delivered another shocker when he announced on his website that he and girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec were married in Switzerland.

Miroslava "Mirka" Vavrinec has been Federer's long-time girlfriend, part-time manager and a former player on the WTA Tour.

"Earlier today, in my hometown of Basel, surrounded by a small group of close friends and family, Mirka and I got married. It was a beautiful spring day and an incredibly joyous occasion," Federer, wrote on his website. "Mr. and Mrs. Roger Federer wish all of you a Happy Easter weekend."

Federer and his new bride are expecting their first child this summer. They met while at the 2000 Sydney Olympics where they both represented Switzerland.

Perhaps as an unintentional wedding present, Federer was presented with a soft draw at next week's Masters Monte Carlo.
