Roger Federer has had a close partnership with Mercedes-Benz for 15 years. This will be extended for the coming years. Since the end of his career, Roger Federer and Mercedes-Benz have taken their long-standing partnership to the next level: Their joint Neon Legacy initiative is intended to give back to society and support especially the next generations of tennis players. In June 2023, a public tennis court in Abbey Wood, London, was renovated and opened to the public by Roger Federer. On Tuesday, September 19th, 2023, right before the Laver Cup, Roger Federer stepped back on the court once again to interact with local kids from the Vancouver area.

Vancouver is the host city of this year’s Laver Cup, the tournament where the elite of global tennis is meeting once a year to honor tennis in general and Australian tennis player Rod Laver in particular. Since the first edition in 2017, the sports stars from Europe have been competing against the top players from Team World in a unique team competition. Since the first edition, Mercedes-Benz has provided the fleet of vehicles for the players, officials and selected guests. A special highlight: the team cars, two Mercedes-EQE 500 4MATIC SUV (WLTP: electricity consumption combined: 22.6 - 18.9 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km) designed in the teams' colors blue and red.
