Meet Roger Federer, On-Court Psychologist

Doner at least picked the right spokesman in its first campaign for Wilson racquets. Here, 16-time Grand Slam champ Roger Federer plays short-attention shrink for player who’s struggling with his backhand. Sure, Federer’s acting leaves something to be desired but at least he proves that he’s less of a machine off the court than he is on it. The spot promotes Wilson’s BLX line and is all about “feel” as you will discover. Credits after the jump.
