Roger Federer's wife Mirka has given birth to the couple's SECOND set of twins.

The two boys, Leo and Lenny, join the couple's four-year-old twin girls, Myla Rose and Charlene Riva. That should make an interesting mixed doubles match in future years!

The odds of having two sets of twins are a staggering 1 in 700,000.

The Swiss tennis star, 32, announced the twins' arrival on Twitter, writing: "Mirka and I are so incredibly happy to share that Leo and Lenny were born this evening! #TwinsAgain."

The 17-times Grand Slam champion announced earlier on Tuesday he had withdrawn from this week's Madrid Open Masters event to be at the birth.

Roger told his Facebook fans: "I've decided to withdraw from Madrid to be with my wife Mirka during these next few exciting weeks for our family.

"I apologise to my fans and hope to be back in Madrid next year.

"I'll be training near my home, and am excited to rejoin the Tour soon."

Roger, who won the tournament in the Spanish capital in 2009 and 2012, has not played competitively since last month's Monte Carlo Masters, where he lost to compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka in the final.

Roger said he wouldn't hesitate to miss any tournament to be at the birth.
