Tennis News: Roger Federer to retire, new career lined up after he quits?

Tennis superstar Roger Federer of Switzerland has a new ad for Mercedes where he was shown impersonating American tennis legends John McEnroe and Andre Agassi. Federer’s acting was so good in the ad that he could have a career in Hollywood when he retires from tennis in the next few years.

In the “Legends of the Game” ad for Mercedes Benz, Federer was seen wearing a funny 80s look mullet and also acted out as a hot-headed player like Agassi and McEnroe during their time playing tennis. The ad also featured Bill Macatee as the narrator and a cameo from another tennis legend Rod Laver.
