“He was funny, full of life, he made me laugh. The coaches sometimes had to kick him off the courts to get some peace,” the book says.

Christopher Clarey’s ‘The Master- Roger’s biography’, gave Mirka’s version of how the two met. of the story. “Writers like Simon Graf have also made it a point to include this super adorable love story in their editions of Roger’s biography. Roger has, on multiple occasions, confessed that his wife is “his rock” and crucial to his successful endeavors on the court,” essentially Sport wrote.

While some pin the Federer and Mirka first meeting to the 2000 Olympics, the two were previously acquainted with each other at various tournaments and in the National Tennis Center at Bienne where Mirka trained privately or attended training camps.

The
legendary American coach, who has been associated with top players over the years, once met Roger Federer and his coach at Wimbledon. However, when Skelly met the 20-time Grand Slam champion, he described him as a laid-back person. He said, “Federer was pretty chill at that time.”” es wrote about his partying.

“He definitely partied and liked his beer, as did his coach. I remember in 2000 at Wimbledon, Federer was drunk as hell at a bar in Wimbledon village.”
