Beijing: France's tennis ace Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has another talent up his sleeve and that is modeling.

Tsonga, who has reportedly been modeled in a 10-page spread for the latest French edition of Gentlemen's Quarterly magazine, said that he has always been interested in fashion and it was an exciting chance to work with the creative team at the magazine, adding that it was an opportunity he relished.

The world No 12 said that for him, it's something positive, and admitted that he is really happy to do that and be on the other side as a man, China daily reported.

The photo shoot was actually taken in Paris in October.

Tsonga claimed that sometimes he is able to buy magazines like GQ, adding that he likes to dress fashionably, claiming that it's great. He believes that GQ is the best magazine for him in terms of fashion for men.

Tsonga compiled a 36-19 match record in 2014, highlighted by winning his second ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title in Toronto, beating current world number one Novak Djokovic, Britain number one Andy Murray, Grigor Dimitrov and Roger Federer in succession, the report added.
