Roger Federer has done a new spot for Google. The 17-time Grand Slam champion donned a Google Glass in a practice session wit his coach Stefan Edberg, giving fans a first-hand look of what it's like playing tennis and hitting balls at 120 mph from his point of view.

According to Atpworldtour.com, the video was made during Federer's recent trip at Google's Silicon Valley campus.
"It was really fun shooting this video," said Federer. "It's not often you get to explore new angles of watching tennis," Federer added.
"I hope fans enjoy this new perspective."
For fans who want to see what it's like when Federer jumps, thumps, and grunts his ways in a tennis match, here is the link to the video.
Google Glass is a smart eyewear that has a built-in computer with touch pad and voice activation, camera, and display. Google Glass officially became available to the general public on May 15, 2014, and it costs $1500. Unfortunately, Google has confirmed that the revolutionary product will not be available in Australia just yet, Theage.com.au reported. In October 2012, Time recognised Google Glass as one of the Best Inventions of 2012.
Federer at Roland Garros French Open Tournament
Federer is in France for the Roland Garros tournament. He's looking for a second French Open title, which he first won in 2009, and an 18th Grand Slam title. He already hit a practice session with Grigor Dimitrov and Lleyton Hewitt.
Jason La Miere of International Business Times wrote in his article that Federer's is unlikely to win another title in the French Open. "If he is to add to his record of Grand Slams, the last of which he won at Wimbledon in 2012, then truth be told, it is unlikely to be on clay in Paris." After Federer pulled out of the Madrid Open to be with his wife Mirka during the birth of their twins, Leo and Lenny, followed by the early shocking defeat to Jereme Chardy in the Italian Open, the Swiss athlete may not be at his tip-top shape right now.
French Open begins on May 26 and ends on June 8.
