(May 6, 2014) Roger and Mirka Federer welcomed a second set of twins to their family on Tuesday. Mirka gave birth to twin boys named Leo and Lenny on Tuesday evening in Zurich. The new boys join four-year-old twins sisters Myla and Charlene in the Federer family.
Federer withdrew from the Madrid Open earlier in the day to be with his family.
Federer made the announcement on twitter:
Mirka and I are so incredibly happy to share that Leo and Lenny were born this evening! #TwinsAgain #Miracle

According to Swiss media, twins seem to run in the Federer family as Roger’s sister also has a set of twins.
The 32-year-old Federer did not specify if he would return for the Rome Masters next week, but Godsick said the 17-time Grand Slam champion intended to enter the French Open, which begins May 25.
“Roger has plans to play the French Open, and he’ll take it step-by-step as to what he plays before that,” Federer’s agent Tony Godsick said in a telephone interview with the Associated Press.
The French Open begins on May 25.
