Roger Federer poses for Credit Suisse ad campaign

Here's a series of classy photos of Roger Federer captured by world-famous fashion and royalty photographer Mario Testino.

This is Credit Suisse's second major advertising photo shoot with Federer.

According to Credit Suisse website, the idea behind the ad campaign is to portray the tennis star and his life as authentically as possible – and far away from the world's center courts.

The images of the campaign will suit its slogan: "Helping Roger Federer Relax Since 1981." That's because in 1981, only a few weeks after he was born, parents Lynette and Robert Federer opened Roger's first savings account with the forerunner of today's Credit Suisse.

The on-going BMW Malaysian Open 2011 today spread its influence and reach for a good cause as Francesca Schiavone, along with Ayumi Morita, Shuko Aoyama and Chan Chin Wei took time off their busy schedules to support a good cause, ‘The Power Over Cervical Cancer (POCC) – Helping To Protect Every Woman’.

which is an integrated communications campaign on Cervical Cancer Education and Awareness, by the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM).

Schiavone, who turned up at NCSM despite nursing an injury picked up during yesterday’s match, said, “I am passionate about charitable causes such as NCSM’s POCC campaign as back in Italy, I have friends who are both cancer patients and doctors who treat cancer patients. Off and on, every couple of months I go to a big private hospital near my home and stay there for as long as I can to lend my support and help out in whatever way that I can, as it is a great experience and I will continue to do so as long as I can.”
