Federer announced his marriage on his website on Saturday. The couple had kept their wedding plans secret.

"It was a beautiful spring day and an incredibly joyous occasion," the 27-year-old said.

The couple, who are expecting their first child, met when they competed at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney.

In 2008 Federer lost his top world ranking to Spaniard Rafael Nadal.
