In the latest installment of What can't this man do?, Roger Federer played chef in a Barilla pasta commercial, in which he brings a sleepy party to life through the magic of his cooking skills.

Prominent roles are also played by skier Mikaela Shiffrin and Italian cook Davide Oldani.   

Barilla additionally did an interview video with all three stars. In it, Federer reveled that his favorite pasta is rigatoni, he prefers tennis balls over meatballs and his motto is, "It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice." 

The Swiss' hunt for his 100th career title is still alive in Dubai this week. Having taking the scenic route, he's into the quarterfinals after defeating Philipp Kohlschreiber and Fernando Verdasco in three sets each.

Federer beat Marton Fucsovics in the quarterfinals and will play Borna Coric on Friday. The other semifinal features Gael Monfils against Stefanos Tsitsipas.
