Hi Everyone!

This is an "unofficial" contest. Guess the date and time of the delivery of the legendary Federer baby! I will be keeping track of people's picks here.

So here is how I guess this will work out, but I'll reserve the right to make some early changes if someone has some good suggestions:

Provide me your estimated Month, Day, Time (Hour, minute)! Submit it in this thread here for all to see. Try not to edit, but you can revise guesses as part of a new post.

Time will be used as a tiebreaker or to separate two equally distant dates.

You must have submitted your guess at least... let's say... ONE WEEK ahead of the actual delivery event for it to count. So hold off or revise your estimates as you like.

Since this thread may or may not be starting too close to the actual date, if you'd like to guess earlier than one week you must submit your guess within 24 hours!

Prizes... well... there are none. But I will do something for the winner with photoshop. I can make a bunny player like my Roger Bunerer... insert pets or people into classical art... I can do quite a few things, so it'll be up to the winner and I to work out the actual prize.

Good luck!!! :cheesy:

Edit: No html embedding of my nice little google spreadsheet, but the entry list can be viewed here! (http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=rCAQQ8Y8doG9wfFZvX_c9gg&single=true&gid=0&output=html)

We're going to revise that to guesses have to be submitted one week ahead instead of two. :) You can edit your guess if you'd like since I don't have many to look at just yet.

Well... if she gives birth this week, then guesses submitted in the next 24 hours will count since I only just started this. :)

Ok. They announced they were pregnant early March. You never do that before the third month. Even being her first (where you do not look that big), Mirka looked like max 6 months at FO. So 28th august at 7am (GMT +1).

Just on time for Roger to be puzzled at the USO :D

It'd be awesome if the baby was born on our birthday (8th, also Fed's b-day) , though! I really hope the baby is a Leo, though. That'd be awesome :p

Is she in labor?

Asian press is reporting she's checked into a clinic.


It is reported that Mirka has checked into Klinik Bethanien in Zurich and she is due to deliver Baby Federer any day now.

Members of the media are already gathering outside the clinic waiting to capture the first picture of the new born baby.

Boy, even the kid is arriving at a perfect time to not upset his US Open plans. The stars are aligned. Federer is destined to win 20+ majors.

The best he will do is tie Martina Navratilova at 18. Steffi(22) and Margaret(24) are safe.

Not so fast. With Federer's currently streak of luck, the ITF will add three more majors on grass each year just for the next few years, as an experiment.

Are we including slams to be won by the Baby (of All Time) also?

Oh please, you keep forgetting the baby will have at least some of Mirka's genes. In which case, the Baby (of All Time) will have a shot at winning Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest for years to come.

He announced it on his facebook page

I have some exciting news to share with you: Late last night, in Switzerland, Mirka and I became proud parents of twin girls! We named them Myla Rose and Charlene Riva and they are both healthy and along with their mother, they are doing great. This is the best day of our lives!

Not sure how to do the quote thing and hope I'm not spoiling things for anyone by posting in this thread

Congratulations to the new parents! And thanks to everyone for entering the pool! With that, this unofficial contest comes to a close.

My scoring guidelines did not penalize revisions as long as they were made sufficiently in advance as TennisAnyone74 did.

So given the "late" evening birth of a pair of BOATs:
