"For me, it's something positive," said the 29-year-old. "I'm really happy to do that and be on the other side as a man."

The photo shoot was actually taken in Paris in October.

"Sometimes I'm able to buy magazines like GQ," said Tsonga. ""I like to dress fashionably, it's great. I think GQ is the best magazine for me in terms of fashion for men."
