Miroslava "Mirka" Federer (born Miroslava Vavrincová on 1 April 1978, later Miroslava Vavrinec) is a Slovak-born Swiss former professional tennis player. She reached her career-high WTA singles ranking of world No. 76 on 10 September 2001 and a doubles ranking of No. 215 on 24 August 1998. She is the wife of tennis player Roger Federer, having first met him at the 2000 Summer Olympics. She retired from the game in 2002 due to a persistent foot injury. She has since then regularly been seen on the ATP Tour, attending her husband's matches.

Contents Early life and tennis career

Born in Bojnice (Slovakia), Miroslava emigrated to Switzerland when she was two years old. In 1987, when she was nine, her father took her to watch a tournament at Filderstadt in Germany. Mirka met Martina Navratilova, who thought she looked athletic and should try tennis. Navratilova later sent her a racquet and arranged for her first tennis lesson.[2]

In 2002, she teamed up with Roger Federer in the Hopman Cup. Her best Grand Slam performance was in 2001, when she reached the third round of the US Open.

However, a recurring foot injury prevented Vavrinec from progressing further up the rankings, eventually forcing her retirement from competitive tennis in 2002. Following her retirement, she took on the role of Federer's public relations manager, traveling with him on tour.[3] Prior to her retirement she was ranked in the mid-80s, with a career high of 76th, during the 2001 season.

Personal life

Mirka married Roger Federer on 11 April 2009.[4] They were married at Wenkenhof Villa in Riehen near Basel, surrounded by a small group of close friends and family.[5] In July 2009, Mirka gave birth to identical twin girls, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva.[6] The Federers had another set of twins in May 2014, this time boys, whom they named Leo and Lennart.[7][8]
