Professional tennis player Roger Federer has confirmed in a post on his official site that he has married his longtime girlfriend Miroslava Vavrinec. "Earlier today, in my hometown of Basel, surrounded by a small group of close friends and family, Mirka and I got married," he wrote on the post dated Saturday, April 11.
"It was a beautiful spring day and an incredibly joyous occasion," Federer continued writing. "Mr. and Mrs. Roger Federer wish all of you a Happy Easter weekend."
Roger Federer and Miroslava Vavrinec, the latter is a former Women's Tennis Association player, first met at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. They began dating soon thereafter. Last month, Federer announced in a post on his official site that he and Vavrinec will welcome their baby later this summer. The infant will be the pair's first child.
