Roger Federer has just secured his seventh Wimbledon title, running through Andy Murray to tie a record held by Pete Sampras and showing that the 30-year-old still has what it takes to be on top of the Tennis world (he’s up for the number one ranking after the win). It brings to mind this recent behind-the-scenes video of Federer’s new Mercedes-Benz commercial for the 2013 GL-Class.
