Looks like the Federer family will be playing a lot of doubles in the future.
Roger Federer’s wife, Mirka, gave birth to twin boys Leo and Lenny on Tuesday afternoon, and Federer took to Twitter to break the big news.

Federer announced earlier in the day that he was withdrawing from this week’s Madrid Open to be with Mirka and the family, and we now know he had a very good reason.
Leo and Lenny will join their 4-year-old twin sisters Myla and Charlene, who were born in 2009. Tennis certainly runs strong in the family genes, as Mirka is a former tennis star herself who met Roger at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.
At 32 years old, Roger could be nearing the end of his illustrious tennis career, As some clever Twitter users pointed out, however, we could be in for a long line of future Federer dominance in the tennis world.
Future Australian Open doubles matchup? Advantage, Federer. http://t.co/hEzjNWTvKh—
