BASEL, Switzerland -- Roger Federer married longtime girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec in a small ceremony in his hometown Saturday.
The second-ranked tennis player announced the wedding on his Web site, saying the couple got married "surrounded by a small group of close friends and family."
"It was a beautiful spring day and an incredibly joyous occasion," he said.
The couple announced last month they are expecting their first child.

Congratulations to a superb athlete.
One of the few times you see an ordinary girl on the arm of a guy who could have any platinum blond Playboy bunny type he wants! Must be the real thing.
Mirka Vavrinec is no “ordinary girl”. She’s a former seeded women’s tennis player who had to leave the sport a couple of years ago due to a foot injury. Girl’s got game — I think they met at the Australian Open, in fact.
She’s pregnant with his child, too, if what I read in the tennis press is true.
I think she’s very attractive, myself.
Bad image link.
I think she looks great as she is now.
Federer is a model athelete who hasn’t let his fame go to his head. A few years ago on his website (which was run by his parents) if you sent him an email via a link he would send at no charge an autographed picture just for the asking. He always said he never wanted his autograph to be worth anything as a collectable.
