Roger Federer and wife Mirka remain mum on the due date of their third child, but Federer hinted today that he would skip tournaments like the French Open to be by his wife’s side.
“So we’re just waiting,” Federer told the AP on Wednesday. “It’s a priority for me trying to be there, trying to support my wife. I’ve played enough tennis matches. Missing a tournament or missing a match wouldn’t change anything for me.”
When asked if it could mean missing a Grand Slam like the French, Federer said it wouldn’t matter.
“Yeah, let’s talk about it when it would happen. At the moment we hope it’s not going to be that way,” Federer said. “If it is, that’s what it is, you know.”
Federer and Mirka announced they were expecting a third child on December 24.
Federer has played a record 57 straight Grand Slam tournaments.
