    I feel really empowered everytime I watch this...Sure the one from 2006 may be more emotional but the song is what I'm more focused on...Anyone know what it is???

    Lang Lang (a Chinese pianist) plays this song. I do not think there is a specific name for it. I think Rolex just commissioned him to compose something for their commercials.

    Yeah, it was an original song composed by Vincent Pope and played by Lang Lang specifically for the Rolex commercials.

    By the way, in 2004, Federer signed a 5-year partnership with Swiss watch manufacturer Maurice Lacroix, becoming the company's official ambassador across the globe. So I don't understand why he's in an ad for Rolex:confused:

    This is the official "Roger Federer" watch from Lacroix.

    Couldn't find the USA Network thing. But found something interesting in the process. Did you know that after Fed won the 2007 US Open they played Darth Vader's Star Wars theme? LOL.

    The one from '07? If so I believe that is "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" by KT Tunstall.

    Rolex commercial requests are now not being taken. I don't like having my email address out in the open...
