The Swiss Maestro had been asked uncountable times about the retirement,
and since 2010 and it is alive, recently Roger Federer told SRF about his wife and her efforts in his career.
The 20 Grand Slam winner admitted that He would stop playing Tennis if his wife asked him to do that.
“Mirka has supported me incredibly so I‘m looking forward to when everything is over.”
“I would have stopped long ago if she hadn‘t had said: ‘Come on, continue,”
“Or when she would have said: ‘Please stop, I don‘t want this any longer.’ I would have stopped then.“
“We also have to find a balance with the four kids, it isn’t the same anymore as four, eight or 10 years ago, that’s for sure,” Roger Federer.Embed from Getty Images
Roger Federer reveals his wife sacrifaces with him in The Tennis career.
Moreover, The Tennis legend added that his wife invested everything to be with him and to support him for so long.
“Mirka invested everything, She started playing tennis when she was 11.”
“She had bad surgeries and didn‘t return well from rehabilitation.”
“She always had problems with her heels and never truly recovered from it.
“Until today she feels little there. I think really she would have had
to undergo another surgery and tried to come back, even if it would have taken two years.”
“It was easy for her this way though to decide. I said to her: ‘Don‘t you maybe want to stop? We could be together the whole time and have a great time.’Embed from Getty Images
“Then I won Wimbledon and when I look back, I once talked with her about it, “
it‘s incredible what you did and she said: ‘No problem’. She just put her career aside and said: ‘This is more important for me’.
“We wouldn‘t have been happy when we would have been apart,” Roger added.
