Roger Federer’s retirement marked the beginning of the second phase of his life. And he has been making the most of it too. Federer was spotted on the Spanish island of Mallorca with his wife and their four children after an eventful Wimbledon outing.
Rare photos of Roger and his wife Mirka, alongside their kids, went viral on Twitter recently. The Federer family arrived on their private jet to enjoy a good Spanish summer. The photographs show a very relaxed Roger, swimming in the Atlantic with his wife Mirka. It is the perfect getaway for the Federer family.
Roger apparently paid the nearby tourist attractions a visit with his family. The former world champion visited the Mallorca Nation Club in St. Nick Ponsa. It is significant because it recently hosted the ATP 250 Mallorca Championships. Roger met with the staff as well during his visit.
The Swiss ace has been quite busy since his retirement from the sport. Not only did Roger co-chair the Met Gala in New York, but he also attended the F1 Miami Grand Prix.
Roger has also been spotted at music concerts a couple of times already. He was seen at Sir Elton John’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road The Final Tour” concert in Zurich. A long-time fan of the English band Coldplay, Roger set the stage on fire with the band.
The wholesome family pictures show Roger enjoying parenthood. He looks peaceful and happy in these family photos. The love between the family members really shines through.
Did Roger Federer pay a visit to Rafael Nadal while in Mallorca?
While the Swiss ace is enjoying some family time in Spain, his fans are wondering if he will meet up with his on-court rival Rafael Nadal. He is, after all vacationing on the island that Nadal grew up on.
When Roger’s vacation pictures were shared, a fan even asked, “Why isn’t he with his bestie?” referring to Nadal of course. Social media has been abuzz with the possibility of the two friends meeting up for a friendly game.
Fans took to Twitter to express their excitement about a possible ‘Fedal’ reunion. A fan even thinks that a little friendly match between them might help Nadal with his injuries.
The two legends of the game appeared alongside one another during Federer’s last match at the Laver Cup last year in September. It was an emotional game for Federer, retiring from the game he dedicated his whole life to.
Nadal was crying too. The Nadal-Federer rivalry on the court dominated tennis for over a decade. So a possible reunion between them will bring a flood of nostalgia for both. Rafa is in the twilight phase of his career while Roger has already retired. Will they meet for one last match?
