Editors Note: We were right. He has been trying different rackets. We think it’s 95/96 inches not 98. Everyone @10sballs.com was thrilled that he joined forces with Stefan Edberg and so happy to have Edberg traveling the tour again. The biggest and best surprise Roger shared was that Mirka was pregnant again. He said the girls would be big sisters. But he never said whether twins were due again ? Twins run in the family. Rogers sister Diana has twins. …And papa Robbie did an amazing job on the 2014 calendar. Ten years now. Wow. Order yours today. See below. Just go to the Roger Federer Foundation site.
Roger Federer and his dear Mirka travel the world with the girls. Can you imagine what their passports look like? Can you imagine what it takes to pull off this road show/side show? Have you ever heard Roger say. ” Oh , I was up last night with one of the girls! ” Never. He literally has never mentioned a bad day or loss on any sleep lost traveling the globe with his twin daughters. They travel with Nannies, coaches and trainers. Roger seems to have two of almost everything. (Can you imagine two Mirkas) They need a family co-ordinator to arrange all the details. Or a family concierge to book all the hotel, airlines, private jets, ground transportation, vans for luggage, Mercedes for Roger. How about all the time changes and strange food for the children. Bedrooms are hotel rooms . Life as a little Federer can be the wildest jet setting global ride of a lifetime.
We haven’t heard his playing schedule for 2014 but we know he must be selective at this stage of his life and career. It will be interesting to see if he plays around with racket head sizes again. It will exciting to see what photos papa Robbie has chosen for the Roger Federer calendar. It’s available on Rogers site - http://www.rogerfederer.com/en.html
We look forward to seeing them all in London for the Barclays year end finals. Should be a great showdown and a great visit to the shops for all the Federer women, Lynette too.

The second seed spent 56 minutes on court, making sure he did not get too careful in his tennis - a mistake he made in his shock third-round Australian Open loss to Andreas Seppi a month ago.
