The timing is, as you’d expect, exquisite.

And there’s a cameo from Novak Djokovic.



  • Sue says:

    Absolutely wonderful!!! What gorgeous fellows and terrific singing!! Federer is a TOTAL CHAMPION.

  • Nick says:

    I assume that is David Foster at the piano.

  • Jeffrey Biegel says:

    It is David–nobody else could pull this off like Dman. Love ya, Foz. They were great!

  • Music Lover says:

    Shame about he auto tune!

  • Peter says:

    Total technical machination. Auto tune to no end. Not sure it’s even them who do the singing. It might be overdubbed.

  • Paul Davis says:

    Matchless teamwork! They do great service here with the net result that a new standard is set. Amazingly, none of them are court making a terrible racquet, that speaks volleys….. errr, volumes. Possibly, Tommy haas a break point in his voice at one instant but overall they get deep below the surface…. a sort of état de grass, more Warbled-on than wimbledon. Let’s hope for some sentimental old Victorian songs next, such as “After the ball.”

    Great fun video, and Bravo Roger for a wonderful recent comeback!

  • James Alexander says:

    It’s so obviously dubbed! Check the lyo syncs that are out. No mica yet theire all “enhanced”. He’s a superb tennis player but anyone who thinks he’s singing this has been fooled.

  • Linda Blandford says:

    Nit pickers!

  • M2N2K says:

    Obvious lip syncing. But NL is correct: timing is very good.
