Roger Federer married his fiancee Mirka Vavrinec in his home town of Basel, Switzerland on Saturday April 11, 2009, he announced on his website, saying the couple got married "surrounded by a small group of close friends and family".
"It was a beautiful spring day and an incredibly joyous occasion," he said. The couple announced last month they are expecting their first child.
Miroslava "Mirka" Vavrinec is a former Women's Tennis Association player. They met while competing for Switzerland in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Vavrinec retired from the tour in 2002 because of a persistent foot injury and has since been working as Federer's public relations manager.
After struggling with his form last year and losing his No 1 ranking to Rafael Nadal, Federer is aiming for his sixth Wimbledon title this summer. He lost to Nadal in the Australian Open final, the year's first major.
