Good question - well as long as Gasquet continues to fail to deliver, I guess the name should be abandoned soon.

Hee, I'm still over-the-moon about this news. As long as Roger and Mirka don't decide to call the kid 'Roland' as someone in GM suggested... good one, though.
Roland!!

I seriously hope it's not one of those weird celebrity names, the ones that make you cringe, literally.

How about Roger? Seriously can't think of a better name if it's a boy

Default Re: Roger Federer to be a Dad!!!

Congratulations to them.

But I have the same worry as some here. I have no doubt about Roger's motivation about tennis at all. But, what I see is that Roger is a quite family type guy who attaches great importance to his family. He will absolutely make a great dad which only raises the possibility that he would put family/kids over tennis in the years to come. It might bring inspiration to him initially but in the long run, I will be very surprised that it won't be a distraction to his tennis and career.

I can see he is very happy about the coming baby. That's good to see. I want him to be happy, but call me selfish if you want, at the end of the day his life has nothing to do with me/us. As a fan, I want to watch him play tennis, and good tennis, and win more slams, and play for a long time. Anything that prevents that from happening can't be good news to me personally.

Of course, it's too early to judge what this change will bring to his career, but I just can't be happy now.

I'll leave you all with this quote:

Quote:
Nothing can ever demotivate me,” Federer said in preparation for his first tournament in six weeks, the BNP Paribas Open — where the desert has been a hospitable host, as three successive titles from 2004 testify. The Swiss has won 14 Masters events — a number that he insists will not become a grand-slam tournament bogey.

haha, yeah, no 'Cruz' or something the like.
Well I wouldn't be all too surprised if they name him Robert, after Roger's dad, in case it's a boy. I'd like to see that, as Roger's dad is such a very nice person himself!

Ah... there's surely a part of me that understands your fears all too well, and I can only hope being right on my optimistic point-of-view right now. We just can't tell now, but the fact that he looks extremely happy right now just gives me good hope that he won't be leaving us soon.

I'd like to... a lot. But Roger has his ways of fooling us all once in a while, hasn't he? Okay enough with the Doomsday Scenario. Sleep well!

Congrats to Roger and Mirka.........this is such beautiful news.

Awww, great news for the couple. For some reason, I've always liked the name Raphael but imagine how it would be for the baby if he carries that name and the specter of 20 grand slams and counting.

Who cares about Roger in this situation? Imagine being Mirka. All of a sudden she's under all this pressure to deliver a child in front of the world from just being a gf trundling around behind him all these years.

Wowowow. Congratulations to Roger and Mirka! I'm sure Rog'll make a great dad.

I think it's only natural to step back and question how this might impact on his career. But I am happy for them. What news.

I am happy for both of them. At the end of the day a baby is far more important than any GS or any record. A baby fed in july or in august...that is exciting. I feel like an aunt...anxiously waiting for the big day.
