If he should play his way into the semi-final in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, he could take the top position in the world rankings again for the first time in over five years.

Examples include Roger’s appearance in the globally broadcast TV ad of the V-Class and the Chinese TV commercial for the M-Class.
