On the eve of the US Open, Roger Federer’s sponsor Credit Suisse has released a new spot featuring the tennis great playing the violin.

The promo has Federer trading in his tennis racquet for a violin and the music coming from his strings wasn’t so sweet. But it’s all in good fun as the spot was for the 75th anniversary of the Lucerne Festival.

Federer begins his quest for a sixth US Open title next week against Grega Zemlja.

queen Says:

They should have put the cow he won mooing chorus in the background. That would complement his musical talent beautifully…


Tennis x Hippy Chic Says:

Lol Roger dont give up your day job.


autoFilter Says:

What a goofball. But, actually, those weren’t at all horrible sounds for someone who doesn’t play the violin.


Giles Says:

@queen. Lol
Is this the best Credit Suisse could come up with?
#FailMiserably


skeezer Says:

^tailed miserably?

Cha-ching. That is the noise of another cash deposit for the Fed family from the respectable Swiss company. You want me to play the Violin? Sure! Cha-ching.

He’ll just play it with his Rolex watch on and then pack it away with the Lindt chocolates in his Mercedes whilst he goes to his zillion dollar farm and visits his cow. Cha-ching. Thank you sponsors.


Mentor Says:

Federer is the reason why I watch tennis. He is a fantastic athlete. He is famous figure worldwide and now people complaint because he appears in commercials.


Giles Says:

^^^ And then come back to reality. NUMBER SEVEN!!!


queen Says:

Zillion gazillion. They made him look stupid.


Steve 27 Says:

This US Open is his RĂ©quiem.

Purcell Says:

Steve 27: erm….Mozart’s Requiem is not just for classical music lovers. It’s appeal is universal just like Roger’s tennis.


Tennis x Hippy Chic Says:

That song always makes me sad,we played it going in and out of the church,at my late fathers funeral:(.


Michael Says:

Actually Roger plays Tennis like a violinist which is pleasing, elegant and graceful. I have never seen any other player who can energise the crowds with his mere presence on court other than Roger. He is a phenomenon of his kind and has no parallel. He commands respect all over the tour and is quite candid and blunt when expressing his comments on controversies. That is his trade mark. I hope he rediscovers his form sooner than later to enthuse his fans like me. I am terribly disappointed and aghast to see him on Court as a loser considering his dominance of yore. Well, let us see whether Roger has still some gas left in his tank to show to the World that he is not yet finished. For his sake, I hope so.
