Now that Mirka has given birth to twins and her maternity is under way, her negotiations for post-maternity employment with the Federer camp has broken down. 

She is rumoured to have accepted an offer to work with the Andy Roddick team for better pay and less hours. 

"It's great and convenient.", she said.  "I do not have to show up for every match and I can take care of business behind the scenes.  I have a special stipulation that I do not have to show up if Andy plays Roger at some point."

"Most of my job will be to make sure that Andy is at the right place to play the right tournament. "

Father-in-law Robert Federer was not too happy and was seen slamming his RF Baseball cap to the ground. 

Roger Federer himself was a little regretful at the development.  "I am sad that we lost Mirka on our professional team but the good news is we cut our overhead by nearly 20 percent," he said as a matter of fact. 

"Mirka has obviously negotiated very well for benefits with the Andy Roddick group although I would have preferred if she dealt more with Robin Soderling.  The Swedes really know how to get full medical and benefit coverage for their dollar."

Asked if she thought the move was disloyal to Roger, Mirka responded, "No, not at all. Roger has something like a 19-2 record over Andy so I don't think I will be a factor in evening up that score." 

"Now, if I went to work for the Nadal or Murray groups, then I think that would be a problem.  The twins have already taken to Uncle Andy.  I guess you could say they both baptized him with a golden shower when he tried to change their diapers.  So cute!  Roger was smiling off in the corner."
