London: Roger Federer’s wife and daughters witnessed from the stands his first Grand Slam title in more than two years, after defeating Andy Murray at Wimbledon.
Twins Myla Rose and Charlene Riva were joined by their mother Mirka, a former tennis player who married Federer in 2009.
The adorable twins, aged 2, dressed in matching outfits, clapped and cheered as their father won his 17th Grand Slam and his seventh singles title at Wimbledon, the Daily Mail reported.
They have become regular fixtures at the 30 year-olds games.
Federer has in the past commented on how much he loves his family and said of wife Mirka in an interview: “As long as I wake up and she is next to me, that’s all that matters.”
He also recently said he was the happiest he’d ever been and enjoyed spending time with his family.
Federer played an incredible game and beat Britain’s Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 and matched Pete Sampras’s record of seven Wimbledon singles titles.
An exhausted Murray broke down in tears as he congratulated his opponent.
His mother Judy and girlfriend Kim Sears were also seen sobbing in the stands.
