“She was there when I had no titles and she’s still here 89 titles later,” Federer said on Monday. “She had a big part to play in it – she knows it, I know it, everybody knows it.”
The Swiss champion understands the importance of family, adding, “She’s a mum and wife first and only later does she become the supporter.”
“I’m just happy she’s my wife and she’s my No.1 supporter.”
And it’s not the first time Federer’s love for Mirka has made us weep. Shortly after claiming victory against Spanish opponent Rafael Nadal on Sunday night, Federer went to hug his wife Mirka in an emotion-filled embrace that was captured on camera.
