What's it like to be the girlfriend/wife of Roger Federer?!

I don't know about you, but for me there's romance surrounding tennis. Whenever I think about tennis I think about Wimbledon, strawberries and cream, triumphs and disasters and yes, this year, heatwaves in SW19 too! I'm mad about tennis and was lucky enough to go to the French Open in Paris earlier this year in June:
Here I am, with Andy Murray (very small!) warming up behind me and just down below in the stand (although you can't see!) is Kim Sears - now otherwise known as Mrs Murray! She arrived along with Andy's coach, former French player Amelie Mauresmo, to take their seats and watch the match. Which Andy won incidentally....
Anyway, I've often wondered what it would be like to be the girlfriend of a tennis superstar - yes, I have dreamed of being married to Roger Federer in another life, but shush, don't tell my husband! Traveling across the world, getting to watch all those matches from the special box, it looks like fun, although perhaps it isn't always so. I can barely watch Murray play out those key points and often cover my eyes - so goodness knows how it is to be a girlfriend, watching the good and the bad, experiencing the highs and the lows, unable to cover your eyes in the full view of the public!
Anyway, if you're in the mood for a spot of tennis romance with a splash of strawberries&cream then check out these links:



As for me, I'm hoping to visit Wimbledon next Monday, where I'll hopefully get to see my secret hero Roger Federer, who, like me, has twins. See, we've so much in common - if only he knew!
