Soon, the pair developed liking each other which eventually bloomed into a romantic love affair. After dating for years,  the couple decided to take their relationship to a whole new level and exchanged the wedding vows at Wenkenhof Villa in Riehen near Basel on 11 April 2009, in an intimate ceremony surrounded by a small group of close friends and family.

"... Their twin girls, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, arrived in 2009, followed by the boys, Leo and Lenny, five years later. Twelve days after the girls were born, the whole family decamped to Montreal for the Canadian Open. How many nappies did he change between matches? “I did a ton of them,” he laughs.Federer’s “kiddies” are currently home - schooled. He wants them to enter mainstream school in Switzerland once he retires, but until then they travel with a nanny and a teacher. Travelling on tour with his family makes for interesting sleeping arrangements, but there is one concrete rule: “I refuse to leave the bed with my wife,” he says. “[I say] ‘We always wanted to have kids, but my [initial] dream was to be with you and not in another bedroom on another floor.’ I’d rather sleep with kids screaming than away from my wife.” How will he cope when, in a few years, Charlene and Myla are begging for Instagram accounts and wanting to go on dates? “I’m ready for it,” he says with a wry smile. “I was a child who tested the limits, so I’ll have some sympathy for them.” When it comes to envisioning life post retirement, he’s vague about his professional plans - though I’d predict a fashion line and more ventures from his sports agency, Team8, which helped launch the Laver Cup tournament in 2017. Personally, though, he’s already got it all worked out. “Because I’ve flown so much, I’d like to do a road trip — go through Italy, Germany, France, Scandinavia. I don’t know London that well, so I’d like to have time to experience it properly and say, ‘Tourist Roger is here!’” It strikes me that Federer’s fans are far more agitated about his retirement date than he is. Having invested so heavily in his career, they can’t bear the thought of it spluttering to a disappointing, unglorified finish. Will they get their happy ending? “The only thing I care about is my wife, my children and my friends,” Federer says, smiling. “Tennis? Great. If I win more — fantastic. If I don’t, it’s all good."
