A new career for Roger Federer! From the tennis courts to the new stage as an actor. The former Swiss tennis player, who said goodbye to the sport last season on the occasion of his Laver Cup, has hung up his racket and tried his hand at a new commercial.
If in the past he has been seen alongside Anne Hathaway, now by another actor. This is Trevor Noah in the brand new spot by Switzerland Tourism entitled Grand Train Tour of Switzerland: the journey of life. If two clues test, it's time for another Swiss to comment on the qualities of the winner of twenty Grand Slam titles.
In an interview with Tennis Channel, Belinda Bencic gave an opinion on the spot she saw: "Oh my God, I feel like he can be an amazing actor. I think we'll soon see him in a movie or something. I heard it was great fun and when you are a Swiss, you understand exactly the humor behind it, you know how punctual the train is, how you can never travel without a ticket.
It's like the worst crime in Switzerland. Nobody ever does. And it was really a lot of fun. I watched the whole video with a big smile on my face."

It is Switzerland that binds Belinda Bencic and Roger Federer.
"I definitely love the mountains, it's really a great place for me to get energy from. So I like being in Switzerland. There are so many lakes, forests and mountains. The nature is just beautiful there. Whenever I'm feeling a little down, it's my place to go," said the Swiss tennis player in the interview commenting on the content of that commercial.
Related by nationality, the two are still the reigning winners of the Hopman Cup: Federer and Bencic triumphed in Australia in 2019, the year in which the last edition of the tournament dates back; the cup will return this year in a different location.
