Roger Federer Reveals How Seeing His Twins Made Wimbledon Title Extra Special

Written by  Jack Henkels

Roger Federer has opened up about how his record-setting eighth Wimbledon title was even more special because his twins – both sets – were there to see him.

“I was just so deeply touched by my performance in the tournament from the beginning to the end,” Federer said Monday morning on Today.

“I looked up in the stands and saw my kids … then it started to sink in that I was a Wimbledon Champion for real,” Federer said.

The Swiss tennis star, 35, defeated Croatian Marin Cilic in three straight sets, 6-3, 6-1, 6-4.

The 19-time Grand Slam champion and father of two sets of identical twins joked that his boys – Leo and Lenny, 3 – had no idea what was going on after their father snatched the trophy.
