Federer has twin daughters of the age 14, Myla and Charlene, and also has twin sons of the age 9, Leo and Lenny. With four growing and maturing children, the 20-time Grand Slam champion found himself with the worries of being a father. 

As much as he would love to have a good family time, the former tennis player had to make a few adjustments to allow his girls to have their own time and try to be a good father. 

I try to be a good father. That's not always easy, especially with 14-year-old girls. They just have minds of their own. We are a close family that loves spending time together. But we also have to let the girls have their own experiences.

With a huge family, the Swiss player often finds himself stuck in a pickle trying to plan an outing or organize a program. A person who has organized multiple tournaments cannot organize an outing with his family, which comes across as ironic.

After retirement, the Swiss star has tried to venture into the business world and also be a good father to his four children. In a recent interview, he stated that his life after retirement was great, and he is very happy with where he is in life. Other than the slow adjustments from tennis, Federer is delighted with his life after retirement. 

Life is great. I am very happy. The transition from an active career to life afterward was quite an adjustment, even if everything happened rather softly. I had been injured a lot in previous years and everything was already going slower. Added to this was the pandemic.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion may have retired from tennis, but he tries to stay connected to the sport one way or the other. Recently, he revealed that he would play tennis with his wife after retirement and even stated that his forehand worked excellently. Other than this, the Swiss tries to give back to the sport in many ways possible.
