"If there's going to be anything in sports or somewhere in finance or business, I have no idea where they're going to go. All I know is I'll be incredibly supportive of them."
He did reveal they already play tennis, not because he has been encouraging them nike air force 270 sale , but because their friends all do and he doesn't want them to feel left out.

"It's not because we want them to. It's because I think it would be a pity if they played no tennis at all."
Despite the reluctance for his children to follow in his footsteps nike air force 1 flyknit womens sale , Federer, who is chasing a 20th Grand Slam in Melbourne, is a great believer in kids playing sport more generally, believing it can teach them a lot.

"Winning nike air force 1 flyknit mens sale , losing, that comes a little bit later, but you learn a lot from that. I did anyway. I think also you make a lot of friends through sports.
"You get to know yourself a bit better. It's healthy. You move around. You go outside. I'm a big believer in these things."
