WATCH: Roger Federer takes time out from injury rehab to sing Beatles classic in new commercial
Roger Federer has not been able to play tennis since February after double knee surgery, but he has at least been keeping busy.
The 20-time Grand Slam winner has filmed a new commercial for Sunrise, the connectivity company for whom he is a brand ambassador.
In it, Federer shows us he is a much better at tennis than he is singing, as he gives us a tune.
He is, though, mercifully given some help after while by a choir, who join in with him after the first verse of the Beatles classic ‘I get by with a little help from my friends.’

Roger Federer is, of course, no stranger to starring in Tv commercials.
He showed off what he does on a ‘day off’ – co-starring with a parrot – and was portrayed as a helicopter chasing movie action hero in another.
