Federer welcomes another set of twins

8:32 am on 7 May 2014

Roger Federer's wife Mirka has given birth to the couple's second set of twins.

The couple welcomed 2 boys, which they have named Leo and Lenny and they join their four-year-old twin sisters, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva.

The Swiss announced earlier today that he'd withdrawn from this week's Madrid Open Masters event to be at the birth, which obviously happened a few hours later.

Federer, who won the clay event in the Spanish capital in 2009 and 2012, has not played competitively since last month's Monte Carlo Masters, where he lost to compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka in the final.

The 17-times grand slam singles champion said he would not hesitate to miss any tournament to be at the birth, even the French Open that gets underway on May 25th.
