Roger Federer: ‘My boys play similar to me when I was a kid’



Roger Federer spoke mostly about his four children in his interview with Tages Anzeiger in Indian Wells. The world no. 1 first became a father in 2009 following the birth of his daughters, Myla and Charlene, then in 2014, following the birth of his twin sons Leo and Lenny.


Speaking about their habits, Federer said: ‘They often go to school in the morning or, like recently, to ski. They see each other less during the day.


When they are finally together, they like to play together. In Switzerland, they ski, in Dubai and even here they play tennis.’ Girls study with a private teacher around the world.


‘We always thought they would normally go to school like us. But unfortunately – or luckily – my tennis changed everything. They once were in a school class, so they know what’s it. The Swiss system isn’t that easy.


You can’t say: now it’s Wimbledon, we will go out for three weeks. The older you get, the stricter, the system is.’ About his children taking on his footsteps, he said, ‘Tennis is one of the fewer things I would like them to do.


I don’t force them, but I told them: all the kids of our friends play tennis. And if you have to play a sport, I’d like it to be tennis. It doesn’t have to be professional at all. Girls enjoy it as well. And the boys are playing much better.


They love it more than the girls. My mother told me that they are similar to me when I was little. It feels so nostalgic to watch them play, I feel like that they know what they are doing. It’s easy for them. But wait: what’s normal at the age of three or four? I don’t know.
