Ahead of his home event in Basel where he once was a ballboy, World No. 1 Roger Federer spent some downtime Thursday by taking his twin daughters to the local children’s zoo in Rapperswil. Federer admitted to the press that his 3-year-old girls, Charlene Riva and Myla Rose, love visiting the animals but joked that they won’t be getting a pony anytime soon.
The 5-time Basel champion is currently in a race for the No. 1 ranking with Novak Djokovic who will take next week off to prepare for Paris, a tournament Federer may or may not play.
“I hope I can play three tournaments in three week but I must sit down and just think about what is with Paris,” Federer said according to this tweet from chiara gambuzza.
If Federer passes on Paris he’ll be all but handing Djokovic the year-end No. 1 ranking.
Andy Murray and Juan Martin Del Potro are also in the Basel field.
