10,000 to 1? Odds set on Federer siblings


News that Roger Federer and his wife, Mirka, welcomed twin boys on Tuesday, joining the 4-year-old twin girls they already have, led one European betting outfit to get creative.
   Ladbrokes, which operates more than 2,800 betting shops in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium and Spain, said Wednesday it was offering odds of 10,000 to 1 for the four Federer siblings to one day meet up in a mixed doubles Wimbledon final.
   Due to the high odds on the bet, Labrokes spokesperson Jessica Bridge told that the maximum wager allowed will be 10 pounds ($17).
   Ladbrokes also issued odds on any of the Federer children to win a Wimbledon singles title (100 to 1) or any combination of the Federer children to win a Wimbledon doubles title (33 to 1).
   The odds of the Federers having a third set of twins has been set by the company at 1,000 to 1.
