Roger Federer Ties The Knot
Tennis’ world second-ranked player Roger Federer tied the knot with his long time girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec on Saturday, April 11, 2009, in a small ceremony in his hometown of Basel, Switzerland. Federer announced the nuptials on his website, saying that they were surrounded by a group of family and friends and the moment was a joyous one for him and his wife. Don’t know if the marriage is a sign of things to come in his life, as there are rumors of his retirement. His wife who is current expecting their first child will accompany Federer next week to the Monte Carlo Masters after he accepted a last-minute wild card invitation Thursday. Federer is a three-time finalist at the clay-court tournament but has never won. Federer is prepping for his for his sixth Wimbledon title this summer and made an early exit at the recently concluded Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Florida. We know for sure one wedding guest who was absent from the wedding ceremonies and that guest would be world number one golfer Tiger Woods. Tiger was busy courting the golf course back at Augusta, Georgia for the 2009 Masters.
