TheDailyBeast: Tennis Stars’ Perfect Matches

9 of 10

Mirka Federer & Roger Federer

Everyone knows that Roger Federer is one of the best players in the game of tennis, but few know that, back in the day, his wife, Mirka, was no slouch on the court herself. She played on Switzerland's team for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, where she shacked up with her future hubby in the Olympic Village. They began dating and played together a year later in the Hopman Cup. A foot injury forced Mirka to retire shortly thereafter, but she stayed involved with the game through Federer, becoming his PR manager. Federer once said of Mirka in an interview, "As long as I wake up and she is next to me, that's all that matters." They married in 2009 in Federer's hometown of Basel, Switzerland.
