Having four kids in a bubble isn’t really going to work out for me
He said at The French Open: “Having four kids in a bubble isn’t really going to work out for me, so we have this situation here and we’ll have it again at Wimbledon, and maybe also at the Olympics.”
Roger went on to say that he and wife Mirka would see how things go at Wimbledon before making a decision about the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.
He continued to press: “My first thought with Mirka is to get through Wimbledon, see how that feels and how that goes, and we’ll go from there.
“Our initial goal was to get in shape for the grass-court season, and for Wimbledon in particular, but so far, so good, everything is OK at home from everything I hear with Mirka.”
