    I just saw a commercial of Federer that advertises Rolex. But I thought that he wears the Swiss watch company of Maurice Lacroix. Did they dump him or something?

    Nobody dumps Fed. He dumped them.

    Federer used to wear Maurice Lacroix watches, a relatively small watch house. Obviously Rolex offered him more cash and there is no way a company as small as Lacroix can compete with a giant such as Rolex......and as a watch person I'd say Lacroix is better quality, but that's just me.

    Yes, I have it on good authority that Federer is actually wearing a Lacroix painted to look like Rolex.

    norcal - you beat me to it....again.
