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.

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.

Mirka during her leaner years, when she was still a ranked tennis player.

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.
