Matchmaking isn’t usually fabricated in heaven but in the case of Roger Federer and Mirka Federer, their union most definitely is owing to their uncanny compatibility.
The ‘Swiss Maestro’ is regarded as the embodiment of a gentleman who is one of the most iconic tennis professionals ever since the beginning of time and his numerous accomplishments certainly speak for themselves.
To share his success, Roger tied the knot with his wife Mirka Federer, who is yet another tennis professional who unfortunately could not continue her career due to reasons that proved prevalent over time.
The tennis world got its biggest shock in 2022 when Roger Federer via his Instagram handle declared his retirement from professional tennis, a decision none saw heeding their way.
Nonetheless, the 20-time Grand Slam made a phenomenal career of himself and lived a life that only feels imaginable for most. His wife Mirka Federer on the other hand, did not, however, get to achieve her wildest ambitions as she, unfortunately, retired from the sport at the young age of 24.
After reaching her career-high ranking of world No. 76, Mirka had a serious run-in with a series of foot injuries that hampered her journey in the sport and resulted in her reluctantly forcing herself out of professional tennis in 2002. However, before she retired, Mirka paired up with her then-boyfriend Roger Federer and played a doubles match at the Hopman Cup.
Despite having retired from the sport, both players live their lives to the fullest, and with the recent retirement of the 20-time Grand slam champion from the sport, things have taken an adventurous course.

Other than that, life has been running smoothly post-retirement for the couple has been pretty rousing because they now spend most of the time with their twin pair children traveling and exploring the world.
