Mirka Federer

Former Swiss tennis player Miroslava Mirka Federer is the spouse of Roger Federer, one of the highest-ranked tennis players in the world.

There was a period when she was among the most promising Swiss women’s tennis players, and she startled fans all around the globe with her rapid rise to the top.

With a career-high position of #76 in the global WTA rankings in September 2001, she achieved her pinnacle of tennis career success.

In 1998, while she was beginning her professional tennis career, she reached a career-high in both her singles and doubles rankings, placing 215th and 216th, respectively.

Roger and Mirka began dating after meeting during the 2000 Olympics when they bonded over their shared love of tennis.

Mirka Federer Biography

Mirka Federer

She was born April 1, 1978, in the Czech Republic. Mirka was born to parents involved in the jewelry industry in Bojnice, Czechoslovakia.

In search of a better life, her family left their own country shortly after she was born and settled in Switzerland.

Mirka Federer has remarked on her relatively humble childhood, in which her family worked hard but never had much money.

Her growing up had a major influence on her developing an appreciation for the value of fame and fortune.

She met tennis great Martina Navratilova when she was eight years old, perhaps as a cosmic sign that the sport had a profound impact on her since she first saw a match when she was very little.

The charismatic Martina captivated her, and she spent her formative years perfecting her tennis game to emulate her.

Before she met her husband, Martina gave her a tennis racket, which she has since proclaimed to be the most meaningful present she has ever received.

Despite facing several obstacles, including financial difficulties and mental disorders, she persevered and eventually had the opportunity to represent her nation in the professional tennis arena in the late 90s.

Throughout her practice sessions, she never stopped dreaming of playing for her country.

She crossed paths with Roger Federer, who had just recently begun his professional tennis career, during the Summer Olympics in 2000.

They began dating shortly after meeting and hit it off, all the while pursuing their respective jobs.

As she advanced to the third round of the US Open—one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world—in the third quarter of 2001, Mirka was at the height of her career.

Despite her early exit from the event, her unique approach was well-received by the crowd, and she received accolades from fans all around the globe.

In the 2002 Hopman Cup tennis event, she played in a mixed doubles match alongside Roger Federer.
