Roger Federer for Nike

Tennis champion Roger Federer is seeded number one in the world and in addition to his great athletic skills, he also has superhuman powers. Or so it seems from the latest Nike commercial which pairs the tennis great with New Zealand stand-up comedian Rhys Darby. The New Zealander is known for his energetic physical comedy routines and in this hilarious and goofy ad, Darby plays Federer's “secret coach” always ready to stalk and ambush him to engage Roger in crazy and really hilarious tennis "battles".

The ad was released to coincide with the Wimbledon tennis tournament presently underway in London.
