Roger Federer needs time off to celebrate Mother's Day

It's time to go back to the family.

Roger Federer may have fallen 6-2, 7-6 (5), in his semifinal match against Albert Montanes in Estoril yesterday but think again.

Montanes is the defending champion here in Estoril.

It's Mother's Day today and he's probably taking a day off to celebrate Mirka's first year as a mother together with their twin daughters.

TENNIS WATCH: First time voter, football, injuries & Mother's Day

Murray holding his ballot.

Andy Murray is a first time voter when polls opened for the British general election on Thursday last week.

Murray did not reveal who he voted for, but he was said to have been closely following the election campaign before the general election.


Rafael Nadal was spotted at the stand watching the football match between Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao.

Nadal will have a chance to reclaim the no.2 ranking after Novak Djokovic pulled out from Madrid Masters this week due to illness and allergies.


Yanina Wickmayer who has undergone arthroscopic surgery on her right elbow to remove a floating bone spur is estimated to recover in 10 days, hopefully in time for the French Open.

Meanwhile compatriot Kim Clijsters is also trying to recover from her foot injury to play in Paris.

Oh yeah speaking about Clijsters reminds me that she's a mom.

Here, I'm wishing all moms have a great Happy Mother's Day!

Marat just won't go away

He may be retired from tennis but Marat Safin is still around and lovin' the sport.

He was seen hanging out with Novak Djokovic earlier this week in Belgrade at the Serbian Open.

Safin was also spotted having some drinks with actor Gerard Butler during Djokovic's match against Fabio Fognini.
