Quotable Quotes: I always knew she’d be a queen.


Thanks FortuneCookie for posting this randomly awesome piece of trivia.

Just when you thought Roger Federer’s life couldn’t get anymore fantastical, a recent feature on Mirka by Le Temps  revealed that she used to date UAE royalty:


Alors savoir pourquoi un membre de la famille régnante de Dubaï a entrepris d’épouser Mirka, 19 ans, après une cour dispendieuse. Elle devait avoir 21 ans, lui beaucoup plus. Il l’emmenait à l’entraînement dans sa Ferrari rouge, «et portait son sac jusqu’aux vestiaires alors qu’il était tout petit», rapporte un ancien entraîneur. «Mirka aimait raconter ses promenades à la Bahnofstrasse. Cétait les mille et une nuits: elle avait des bijoux partout.»

Elle n’a pas moins repoussé les assiduités princières, «parce que l’émir exigeait qu’elle abandonne le tennis». 


Rough translation:


At the time, a member of the royal family in Dubai started dating Mirka, 19 years old, after an expensive courtship. She was 21, he was a lot older. He took her to drive in his red Ferrari, “and carried her bag around the locker room even though it was small”, said a former coach. “Mirka likes to talk about their strolls down Bahnofstrasse [luxury boulevard in Zurich apparently]. It was like “1001 Nights”: she had jewels everywhere.”

She turned down the attention of the prince, “because the Emir asked her to abandon tennis.”

Hang on a sec. You mean, Mirka dumped a prince for this hairy 19-year-old …. THING?



Well that worked out fine for her. 


Royalty is – likeomgawwwd – so 1789.

    I always knew Mirka was The Boss but royalty? The woman must have some magic (I’m thinking GOAT sex magic lol)! And OMG, I cannot believe Fed was ever that ugly (yes I used the f word!). But man, he was hairy! Those bushy eyebrows, unshaven face, very hairy arms (and body!), Mirka was a visionnary I tell you! She saw the potential in Chewbacca and turn him into a human being. She deserves a Nobel Prize for that and if she’s catholic, sainthood!

      Julie, when I first saw that picture of Roger, I just HAD to save it as evidence of his former fugliness.

      I like the idea of Sainthood for Mirka. In the alternative, Roger could buy her a small island in the pacific and crown her Queen for real! 😀

    This doesn’t surprise me at all. Mirka oozes royalty out of her pores.

  3. JFK says :

    Queen Mirka. Love it.

  4. Alex says :

    Mirka is amazing. In 5 short years, she turned Fed from Chewbacca to GQ material. For that alone she deserves some kind of international award.

    Word of warning peeps: try not to sound misogynistic and/or racist. I do moderate comments.

    The article is NOT a compliment.
