There could be a list of things as long as your arm that Roger Federer and Mirka Federer share in common.

Their surname, for one, while they are both from Switzerland and they have twins with one another.

For it has emerged this week that both Mirka and Roger feature in the top five names searched on Google in Switzerland!

Top of the pile is the 19-time Grand Slam champion, who has been the most searched Swiss personality in his country in 2017.

Behind Wawrinka comes Roger's wife Mirka, a former tennis player herself. The pair met at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney with Mirka enjoyed a career high ranking a year later, when she got to the world No 76 spot.
