 An Ion Tiriac trophy wasn't the only award Roger Federer received for winning the Madrid Open on Sunday; the tennis star was rewarded with a framed suit from the upcoming 'Men in Black 3' film, courtesy of Will Smith.

After Federer won his 20th Masters 1000 title in a 3-6, 7-5, 7-5 victory over Tomas Berdych, Will Smith took the court and addressed the audience in Spanish.

Hello Spain. I'm very happy to be here today. As the framed suit was brought onto stage Smith turned to Federer and said, I have a very special present. This is my suit from my latest movie, 'Men in Black III. From me, to you. Congratulations.

Federer accepted the gift with a humble smile, posing for the cameras with his thumbs up in appreciation.

Will Smith is currently in Europe promoting his latest film in the Men in Black Series with his wife Jada.

Federer's latest victory has bumped him up to second place in the ATP rankings, surpassing Rafael Nadal and closing the gap with Novak Djokovic, who currently holds the number one spot.

'It is amazing to win here again,'' said Federer ''It has been a tough tournament. Tough to move, but you've got to try to make the most of it. Here there was some good tennis and some bad tennis, but you see that in all tournaments.''

Federer, who won the Madrid Open in 2006 and 2009, said Tomas played very well. I'm sure we will see each other many more times and they will be quality matches like this one,' he said Yahoo News reported.

Meanwhile, Serena Williams dominated the women's final in her 6-1, 6-3 win against the world No.1 Victoria Azarenka.
