59 Comments for Roger Federer’s Wife Mirka Gives Birth To ANOTHER Set Of Twins!

RZ Says:

The GOAT of fathering twins! LOL.

Congrats to the Federer family.


madmax Says:

(CNN) — He’s done it once — and now he’s done it again.

Roger Federer welcomed another pair of twins into the world Tuesday after his wife Mirka gave birth to boys Leo and Lenny.

The Swiss star, who had earlier pulled of out the Madrid Open ahead of the impending birth, announced the news on Twitter.

He tweeted: “Mirka and I are so incredibly happy to share that Leo and Lenny were born this evening!”

Federer and Mirka became parents to twin girls Charlene Riva and Myla Rose in July 2009.

The 32-year-old revealed on Twitter on Christmas Eve that the Swiss sweethearts were expanding their family in 2014.

But Federer would not reveal his wife’s due date or whether the couple were expecting another set of twins.

He will now swap new balls for new diapers although he hopes to be back on court in the near future.

“I apologize to my fans and hope to be back in Madrid next year. I’ll be training near my home, and am excited to rejoin the Tour soon.”

Federer, a three-time Madrid Open winner, will be replaced in the draw by Poland’s Lukasz Kubot, event organizers have announced.

The Swiss played his last match three weeks ago in the final of the Monte-Carlo Masters, where he was defeated by compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka.

Novak Djokovic has already announced he will skip the clay-court event as he seeks to recover from an arm injury.

With the French Open just three weeks away, Federer will now likely have little time for competitive practice before the year’s second grand slam begins.

The world No. 4 has previously intimated he would not play in the French if meant he may miss the birth of his child.

“I’ve played enough tennis matches. Missing a tournament or missing a match wouldn’t change anything for me,” the 17-time grand slam winner told reporters last month.

Can’t believe that Federer would miss the next GS. I am sure he will be there. Keep the consecutive record going.


Frankie Says:

Incredible! Another set of twins….WOW!


Eric Says:

Federer didn’t stay off the tour when he had twin set #1, so I bet he’ll be back for Rome, and certainly Paris.


Giles Says:

@madmax. Fed had twin boys, great. Why do we need 1000 lines from you?


Polo Says:

Congratulations Roger and Mirka! Federer is really the best. There’s another record that’s tough to beat.


Hippy Chic Says:

Congrats to Roger and Mirka on another set of twins,lucky they are in a position where they can afford the best nannies,they will have their hands full with four little ones,still all the best to them,twins boys and now twin girls what are the chances lol….


Steve 27 Says:

The goat is not Federer, the real GOAT is his doctor’s wife.

Parabens!


MARY AND BOB Says:

CONGRATULATIONS TO ROGER AND MIRKA!

WELL, YOU NOW HAVE TWO SETS OF TWINS!!
DON’T LET THOSE LITTLE GIRLS TEASE THEM TOO MUCH!


RZ Says:

@Steve 27 – Did you mean his wife’s doctor rather than his doctor’s wife?


Purcell Says:

Congratulations to Roger and Mirka. Astounding news.
Giles: why do we need even one line from you?


Steve 27 Says:

RZ,,hhaahh, exactly you just said.
Is a typo.


Rita Says:

Congratulations!! That’s so awesome…twin girls followed by twin boys! Hope the babies and Mirka are doing well!

And I think Rog will skip Rome but come back for RG. Let’s be honest, a multimillionaire’s task in looking after kids is veery different to what applies to you or me. It’s not like Mirka will have to look after 4 kids alone for the two weeks


andrea Says:

wow. that’s going to be one busy house!

i hear that twins runs in the family and that roger’s sister also has twins.

it’s interesting that they choose very non european names for their children.

and i guess it’s an homage to federer’s enjoyment of lennie kravitz’s music….


Polo Says:

Roger must be a really happy man. He has everything now. No more tears for any match he loses from now on…although another Wimbledon for the twin boys would be great! It’s a happy day.


Patson Says:

Sweet ! You got to learn from Fed how to have ‘twinners’ and hit ‘tweeners’ :)


RZ Says:

You can’t spell “Twins” without W-I-N! :-)


Colin Says:

Why are some of you crediting this to Roger? As far as I can tell after a quick search, if one parent is responsible for the birth producing twins, it’s the mother. The twinning process begins when the mass of cells splits AFTER the initial fertilisation of the ovum.

It’s a good thing the Federers are rich. Mirka will be 50 years old when her children are still at a very lively age, and quite a challenge for a mother if she had to cope without domestic help. Of course Roger would do his bit, but by that time he’ll be busy with his own career, whatever direction that may take.


Bad Knee Rules Says:

Congrats to Mirka and Roger, a big happy family.

By the way, Lenny and Leo are very much European names. We can say they derived from the old Latin name ‘Leo’, which became Leonard or Leonardo and so on, meaning “lion” or “brave as a lion”.


Thomas Says:

Ok. Good for federer.Hope he’s back for Rome.


Humble Rafa Says:

Congratulations! Now a family of 6. Each one gets 110 sq ft in his 650 sq ft apartment.

Also hope the 16 year old Swedish coach can change diapers.

Also, the world is officially rigged against me. 0-4 deficits can’t be overcome easily.


Kimmi Says:

Another twins??? Amazing!What are the chances of that happening twice?

Congratulations Roger and Mirka. Will be very busy parents.


Kimmi Says:

LOL Humble Rafa! that is funny


Perfect fan Says:

Whooooooaa….wat a lovely piece of news. TWINS yet again!! the Federers’ are rly special. Hearty Congrats to both mirka n roger. I m pining to have a glimpse of the twins, which I m sure will happen soon.

And now, I m such a relieved fan….the very thought of fed missing out RG or Wimby was nightmarish for me. For now, if roger misses out Rome too….i won’t be complaining. But watching a GS without roger….naaaaahh!

Enjoy the happy parenting times fed…. ;)


Wheels Says:

Congratulations to the happy parents. Four young kids can be a handful but I’m sure that they have a good support team and Roger must be a pro at changing nappies already.


tweener Says:

A record that will stand the test of time, almost impossible to break – 2 set of identical, same sex twins!! :))

#BowToTheKingOfRecords


Steve 27 Says:

Rafa’s kid will 5 years younger tan these twin.
So, Nadal Federer part two in 25 years.


Steve 27 Says:

than these twins, I mean


Margot Says:

Huge congrats.Not doing things by halves are they!
Absolutely twins run in families and tend to skip generations.


Michael Says:

Congrats to Roger and Mirka for another addition to their family. Was this premature delivery by any chance ? Actually Roger was expecting this birth to take place around Rolland Garros. Nevertheless, Roger is now a proud father of two sets of twins belonging to different gender.


amadeus Says:

Rafa´s kid, ahahahah, the next thing is the end of the world.


Sivaji Says:

Last time when he got twins he won both RG and Wimbledon.. will it repeat?


Lulu Says:

Congratulations to Roger & Mirka!

Thank you, Colin. Roger can take credit for many great accomplishments, but producing two sets of twins is more Mirka’s achievement (or her doctor’s.)

Keep your knickers on Giles.

Would be awesome.

Voila Giles!

Purcell :)


madmax Says:

Giles,

Considering you have nothing better to do than to debate Federer at all, then all of sudden, gracious wishes? Think it’s a bit delusional for you to share your good wishes, especially when you don’t give an R A?


Humble Rafa Says:

The Arrogant One will have 16 grand kids. All twins. It won’t be funny then.


tweener Says:

“The Arrogant One will have 16 grand kids. All twins. It won’t be funny then.”

hmmm, but the Injured one is taking this 0-4 deficit very seriously. It is affecting him mentally already losing routine matches at MC and Barc.

‘Injured one’ – “must start impregnating xisc, lemme try harder this time” ;)


contador Says:

Wow, big congratulations to the Federer’s.

I know a family with nine kids. Three of the births twins, three single babies; but all sets of twins were fraternal twins.


Giles Says:

@madmax. Unlike you I am well-mannered. It costs nothing to offer good wishes to anyone, yes, even fed.
Vamos Rafa!


Giles Says:

I thought this was a fed/Mirka/twins thread but I see Rafa’s name is dragged on here for no apparent reason.
@tweener. The crude innuendo is not appreciated and IMO should not have been overlooked by the moderators.
#NoSmutAllowed


Purcell Says:

Giles:it obviously cost you a lot to offer congratulations to Fed when you have to qualify it with ‘even’.


skeezer Says:

“I thought this was a fed/Mirka/twins thread but I see Rafa’s name is dragged on here for no apparent reason”
Guess who brought up Rafa on the other thread when the birth was announced?

@HR
I’m not laughing. Best to to leave the bad comedy posts and start winning, then you can talk.

Congrats top Fed/Mirka. 2 twin girls, 2 twin boys, 17 GS, GOAT….you have accomplished it all and then some!


Giles Says:

HR is, without a doubt, the wittiest and most humorous poster on this forum. It is a real shame that his clever wit is lost on the fed fans.
@skeezer. Do you actually understand some of his posts?

#YouAreTheBest


skeezer Says:

^now we all know who HR is….hehe.


Giles Says:

@madmax. With all due respect, I think you’re losing the plot. Time for bed rest!!


Giles Says:

@ skeezer. You give me too much undeserved credit!
#HR is da man!


Humble Rafa Says:

Time to keep the goat and the goat-wives separate. Humble King is unable to keep a lid on the goat population.


tweener Says:

“The crude innuendo is not appreciated and IMO should not have been overlooked by the moderators”

Look, who is speaking, LMFAO!!


tweener Says:

“Time to keep the goat and the goat-wives separate. Humble King is unable to keep a lid on the goat population.”

Are we supposed to laugh on this piece of sh!t. Ok, ha-ha-ha-ha. OMG! I m in so much pain laughing, clutching my tummy. You are too funny!!


Giles Says:

This is what I meant in my post @10.40 am. The idiots here don’t comprehend HR’s wit. They are all at sea aka tweener’s post.
#HRCarryOnBamboozlingTheIdiots


tweener Says:

^yada-yada-yada.YAWN!!

Giles, you the speaker, you the listener, and you the advisor. Quite a few roles, you are playing…you must be a busy man, ain’t you??

Hippy Chic Says:

Rogers wife has given birth to twins which is fantastic,and lovely to hear something positive,with whats been going on this week with the sad death of the lovely Elena at the young age of 30,and 3 people losing their lives in that horrible fire,which is reported on the other thread,you would think people would all lighten up a bit jeez….


wheels Says:

Hippy Chic, I’m with you on this one. No need to make everything a joust.


Hippy Chic Says:

Wheels thanks but i feel that we are p*ssing in the wind,it will all fall on deaf ears unfortunatly….


metan Says:

Lenny and Leo, sounds like an artist name. I bet they won’t be a tennis player. 😜
Congratulations Roger and Mirka. Family time!!!!


Giles Says:
