Roger Federer talks about first love at press conference

Before the Australian Open Championship, Swiss world-famous tennis player Roger Federer talked about his first love at the press conference.

“It came at the age of 18, with a girl who was two years older than me, during the Sydney Olympic Games. Her name was Mirka Vavrinec. We were both playing for Switzerland in tennis,” recalls Federer, “and then we spent two weeks together in those dorms. We were together with the wrestlers and all the other cool athletes. I guess over the two weeks, we built up some chemistry.”

It also turns out that wrestlers have big hearts — it was one of them who suggested Federer make the first move. “He said, ‘Hey, kiss her now.'”
Federer giggles: “And I’m like, ‘No, I don’t know, maybe, should I?'”
The wrestler egged him on. “So, anyway, I did,” continues Federer.

Even so Federer had to fall back on the teenage trick of beefing up your age with fractions. “She told me I was so young when she kissed me. I tried to tell her I was almost 18-and-a-half. I tried to sneak in a quarter year.”
