Roger Federer's Wife Mirka Joins A-list Celebs to Watch Jannik Sinner Play at Wimbledon 2024

Mirka Federer made a rare public appearance at Wimbledon recently — this time, without Roger by her side. While she was a fixture at the legend’s matches during his playing days, this time chose to watch the Jannik Sinner vs Matteo Berrettini match from the VIP box alongside her 4 children.

This did not go unnoticed.

Sinner’s style, poise, and potential have led to comparisons with Federer, particularly the way both move on grass. And fans are already tallking about how Alcaraz-Sinner rivalry is the next Federer-Nadal of tennis. Mirka choosing to watch Sinner play is seen as hint of who her favourite is among the current crop of players.

Of course, Mirka isn’t the only celeb fan of the young Italian. Sinner’s match also attracted other notable figures, including Tony Godsick, Federer’s business partner and a close friend of Mirka, former UK Prime Minister Theresa May, and renowned golfer Justin Rose. These high-profile spectators reflect the Italian’s growing appeal and the excitement surrounding his performances at Wimbledon. 

Meanwhile, Roger Federer showed that he remained the consummate professional in whatever he chooses to do. Arriving in London a few days after his family, Fedex opted to first go cheer his client.

Federer puts business first, skips Sinner to cheer client Ben Shelton

The 20-time Grand Slam champion now owns talent management company Team8, which he co-owns with Godsick. The duo showed their support for their star athlete from the United States, Ben Shelton in his third round match against Denis Shapovalov. Shelton went to win. Federer too went viral for the way he wore his Olivier People sunglasses, showing that whether as player or spectator, he will always be in the minds of tennis fans.
