Cheeky Federer twins capture Wimbledon hearts

Roger Federer took the headlines after his record eighth Wimbledon title but his adorable twins stole the show at the All England Club.

 

The Swiss ace extended his unparallelled grand slam record of 19 singles titles after capturing an unprecedented eighth Wimbledon crown against Marin Cilic.

EIGHTH AND LAST?: Federer coy on Wimbledon swansong

A month shy of his 36th birthday, Federer eclipsed the record he shared with legends Pete Sampras and Wlliam Renshaw with a crushing 6-3 6-1 6-4 triumph over wounded Marin Clic to become the oldest champion at The All England Club since 1930.

With his wife, two sets of identical twins, mother, father and sister all in the stands, Federer wept tears of joy after penning the latest remarkable chapter of his storied career.

Had he seen the cheeky antics on display from one of his twin boys in the crowd, the Swiss maestro probably would have been laughing, rather than crying.

While most eyes were on Federer as he gave one of his memorable acceptance speeches, many couldn't help but notice one of the twins pulling faces from the stands.

There was laughter all around as the little guy got a telling off from his big sister, who did her best to teach him some manners.

For Federer though, it was clearly special to have three-year-olds twins Leo and Lennart present as well as Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, who were also there when the Swiss won in 2012.

"They have no clue what's going on, they think this is probaby a nice view and a nice playground but it's not quite like that here so hopefully one day they'll understand," Federer joked.



"But it's very special. "It's a wonderful moment for us as a family. This one's for us".
