Federer took on a new challenge in 2009 when his two daughters, Myla and Charlene, were born. The challenge doubled when his sons, Lenny and Leo, were born in 2014. While he would have wanted to figure his children out, he has found himself with another task, aiming to give the right values to his children in an ultra-connected world.

Talking to Le Matin, a Swiss French-language newspaper, he said, “They have a lot of character now. Even if we are very fusional, it is important that I let them do their experiments.
