What can’t Roger Federer do?
Federer has always stunned the tennis world on the court, but the 20-time Grand Slam champion has left fans speechless after performing a rendition of The Beatles in a new ad.
'WHAT A GEM’: Fans go wild over Rafa Nadal's new routine
Federer, who is out for the remainder of the 2020 season due to a knee injury, enjoys busting out a melody every now and again.
A video of Federer, Tommy Haas and Grigor Dimitrov - dubbed The Backhand Boys - singing Chicago’s ‘Hard To Say I'm Sorry’ took the internet by storm back in 2017.
Now, Federer has shown off his dancing moves and his vocals in a new ad for Swiss communication company Sunrise.
Federer, to the tune of ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’ by the Beatles, can be seen singing and dancing around a room to the famous British song.
He is quickly joined by a group of singers where he leads them in dance and song.
Fans couldn’t get enough of Federer showcasing his admirable singing ability.

However, some pointed out that Federer was a tad off-tune during the chorus and shared a laugh that singing may be one thing he is not be better at than them.
Well, at least I can say that, when it comes to singing, I'm as talented as Roger Federer 😂😂 https://t.co/fZaO7dakJk— roger maskerer (@AlwaysEnny) September 16, 2020
Federer’s return to tennis
Federer is talking optimistically about returning to his ‘highest level’ after knee surgery, but does tennis have to start adjusting to a future without the Swiss star?
The 20-time grand slam winner announced on Wednesday that he would be sidelined until 2021 after his second operation in a matter of months.
Federer remains upbeat, tweeting: “I plan to take the necessary time to be 100 per cent ready to play at my highest level.”
In some ways 2020 is a good season to miss after the coronavirus ravaged the tennis schedule.
Writing Federer off in the past has proved dangerous.
He returned from a six-month injury lay-off to claim the Australian Open in 2017, winning his eighth Wimbledon crown later that year.
But he will be 40 in 2021 and is now heading into uncharted territory.
