He's a Catholic and did it for obvious reasons. However, i think it was at a bad time, and maybe could affect him. I wish him all the best in his personal life

IF i was a tennis player, and i really wanted to win, i would be in Monte Carlo getting ready.
Clearly he has other things on his mind

Since its bad luck in some countries in Europe to have a baby before you are married i guess this could be part of the reason,it just looks a lot better to be married when having kids,a bit old-fashioned? Perhaps.

How is this supposed to be a distraction for him? He had a small ceremony with friends and family, the planning is one of the hardest parts of a wedding and that's over now. He and Mirka will continue to travel together, as they have always done. The 'distraction' already happened when she got pregnant and they seem to have adjusted to that now.

Congrats to Roger and Mirka. Have a good week in Monte Carlo (just win the damn thing already).

After nine years as a couple, it is about time Mirka made an honest man out of Fed. ;o)

In addition to his slight (and inevitable) latter twenties decline, Fed will have to contend with the distractions of a wife and kid. That seems to always take a considerable toll on top players who must be extremely single minded/focused/selfish to maintain their highest level of play.

Sampras' GS record is now officially safe (unless Rafa, Murray and Joker suddenly disappear.) ;o)

GameSampras

Andre and Steffi were married in 2001. AA only won only one more major thereafter (2003 AO).

The baby is due "this summer." Fed will be lucky to make it past the semis at Wimby. (I hope I'm wrong.)

Tennis isn't everything. Even if RF never wins another major title, he has had a tremendous career.

But werent Andre and Graf together like a year or two before that? I thought Andre played some of his best tennis when he was with Stefi. Much better than when he was with Brooke Shields. She really screwed Andre's head up

GameSampras
04-11-2009, 11:29 AM
Roger will be alright.. Its not like marriage is the death sentence for ever player. Roger has lost his grip or stranglehold of the competition because Nadal has peaked and good solid players like Djoker and Murray came along . Nothing more nothing less. it was foreshadowing even back 2-3 years ago. You knew once Nadal tweaked his game and matured he would become the best. No one dominates forever. And great players always come along.

Plus Fed is only 27. Its not like hes in his 30s. He still has some gas in the tank

AA had an incredible 1999 which is the year they started dating (right after he won the French Open). Dating and married with kids is a bit of a difference. ;o)

And yes, Brooke completely destroyed AA. He got fat and his ranking fell to 137(?), He was playing challengers and not winning.

The thing is though some it prolly depends on who you marry. Stefi Graf was involved in tennis. Mirka was and is involved in tennis. Bridgette Nielson wasnt involved in tennis but the movie business. Brooke Shields was involved in the hollywood scene. I dont think Marriage to Mirka will be that big of a deal to Roger. Having a kid is another story however. Andre's focus went off of tennis onto a different scene for a few years there when he was with Brooke. Once he got with Stefi he recommitted himself to the game. She may have been instrumental if Andre doing that. Who knows. Its easier I think if you meet a girl who actually is involved in the game in some fashion not something else like the hollywood scene. Its easy to lose focus that way

Andre was already into his 30s by that point though.. You cant ask for too much out of a player at that point in his career. Andre's top level of tennis ended in 1999 IMO. He was very solid after but couldnt duplicate what he did that year. What hurt Andre was what were supposed to be his best years, he went MIA

I'm sure he has his own jet, and will have a nurse/nanny for the child at all times. There is no reason why the child would interfere with anything in their life.

Interesting observations..... it seems to me that getting married to a very attractive woman, such as Bridget Wilson (and too Brooke - she's pretty gross now), will hurt the career of a pro tennis player. Marrying a woman of more moderate aesthetic appeal such as Steffi Graf will not be so disastrous for a tennis player.

In that's the case, then Roger definitely has nothing to worry about.

O and congrats to Fed this will not effect him at all instead it should make him feel happier and more realized, I hope he can win this tittle because it is like a small F Open, I mean considering Nadal has won this tournament like 4 times in a row, I think he will have more chances now knowing he is not the favorite this will take pressure off him. Good luck Fed.

Oh, and funny stuff up there with Raf and Feli running shirtless with the wind in their hair. What song do I hear? Is that the theme from Chariots of Fire by Vangelis or ... 'It's raining men'?

Well, congrats to the Federers! Very sweet couple....God bless them...wish them well.

THis just in....on the wedding night, Roger had her up a set and a break, was about to close it out, but fell apart in the last few minutes ;-).

Interesting observations..... it seems to me that getting married to a very attractive woman, such as Bridget Wilson (and too Brooke - she's pretty gross now), will hurt the career of a pro tennis player. Marrying a woman of more moderate aesthetic appeal such as Steffi Graf will not be so disastrous for a tennis player.

In that's the case, then Roger definitely has nothing to worry about.

Moderate?? Are you kidding?? :-?

This will either clear his head for winning two more Slams (at least) or he'll end the year at #3 or worse.

This isn't the best time for him to get married. Roger is a type of guy who will probably care about his family and baby, which in turn will definitely effect his tennis result. We can expect an even more drastic decline in Roger's career after this.

You DO realise that nothing changes when you are married right? You spend much more time on your relationship when you are dating rather than when you are married?

The only thing that could affect his game is having to cope with a new born, but it is not as if he will have to manage that on his own. I'm sure he will have hired help.

Alot of sports people have said that their desire to win became subdued when they had children which is so it should be your children should be the mot important thing to you but that doesn't mean he wont win again!

Honeymoon on hold for newly-wed Federer

World No 2 takes up wild card in Monte Carlo Masters after surprise wedding

By Paul Newman in Monte Carlo


Monday, 13 April 2009

Monte Carlo may sound like the perfect honeymoon destination, but this was probably not what Mirka Vavrinec had envisaged. Having married in Switzerland on Saturday, the bride flew here yesterday with her groom so that he could go straight back to work. Business is business, especially when your husband is the world's most famous tennis player and there is an important tournament in the offing.


Vavrinec and Roger Federer, who is playing here in this week's Monte Carlo Masters, met nine years ago at the Sydney Olympics. She has been his constant companion ever since, helping to run his business affairs and supporting him from the side of courts around the world. The couple recently announced they were expecting their first child this summer and on Saturday they married in Federer's home town of Basle.

The wedding was a closely kept secret, with Federer making a simple announcement on his official website. "Dear fans," he said. "Earlier today, in my hometown of Basle, surrounded by a small group of close friends and family, Mirka and I got married. It was a beautiful spring day and an incredibly joyous occasion. Mr and Mrs Roger Federer wish all of you a happy Easter weekend."

News of the wedding came as a surprise to almost everyone. "I had no idea it was happening," one of Federer's closest associates said here yesterday. "I texted him as soon as I heard. He texted back to say he was over the moon and that it was the best day of his life."

The wedding probably explains why Federer had initially chosen to miss this week's tournament, which is the traditional start of the European clay-court season. On Thursday last week, however, the world No 2, presumably with the blessing of his bride-to-be, successfully requested a wild card. Federer joins nine of the world's top 10 players, including Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray. Those two yesterday interrupted their preparations to play an exhibition match to publicise the tournament.

That means you should be happy right? This means he won't break the record and Pete's record is once again safe.
