Smith made the presentation himself following the match, in Spanish no less, as he and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith make the rounds in Europe promoting the third installment of the Men in Black franchise which is set to be released later this month.  No word on whether Federer is a close friend of Smith’s, or if he’s even a fan of the MIB  movies.  Hey, whether he’s both or neither, at least he got a free suit out of the deal.
