Wonder how long Roger Federer holds on to this before he puts it up for auction on eBay?

Roger Federer captured his third ATP Mutua Madrid Open on Sunday by defeating Tomas Berdych 3-6, 7-5, 7-5. With the win Federer vaults past rival Rafael Nadal to No.2 in the ATP ranking, which is nice, plus he got to take home a snazzy trophy, a sizeable winner’s check, as well as—and this is totally unrelated to anything in the world of tennis—one of Will Smith’s suits from Men in Black III.

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.

Here’s video of Smith’s classy, albeit totally random, gesture…

Federer’s mannerisms and awkward thumbs up tells me that while he appreciates Smith’s gesture, a Ferrari would have been much nicer coming from a guy making $20 million a movie.
