During his match with Tommy Haas in Sao Paolo, the seventeen-time Grand Slam champ entered the arena sporting a full Brazil strip and dribbling an oversized tennis ball onto the court. If fans weren't already enamored with the man whose man is in the title of the tournament they paid to see, they were certainly won over by his tribute to the Seleção.

After some silky moves, Feds proceeded to play a spot of tennis-football with Haas, before both men played actual tennis wearing full Brazil strips. The Swiss legend won the match in two straight sets, and his money-spinning tour will roll on to Argentina later this week where he will play Juan Martin Del Potro (probably in La Albiceleste colors).
While in the Brazilian City, Federer also met with Pele, who gave him a signed Brazilian 1958 World Cup jersey in exchange for an autographed tennis racket. The former Santos star posted a picture of his gift on his Twitter feed, before resuming his normal service of Tweeting about companies that endorse him.
