Well Christmas Gifts are coming earlier this year; first there was Blake Griffin in the 2011 ESPN Body Issue – now here is Jo-Wilfried Tsonga as featured in the U.K.’s Cosmopolitan Magazine (Cosmo U.K.)
Tsonga, one of my favorite players on the ATP World Tour, agreed to pose in his birthday suit… for a charitable cause. It’s in support of the Everyman Male Cancer Campaign; which raises awareness of, and funds research into, testicular and prostate cancer. Tsonga is the third tennis player to bare all , following in the footsteps of Spaniards Tommy Robredo and Fernando Verdasco.
I am not sure what his quote below has do with raising funds for prostate cancer research but I like it!
“My favourite part of my body is my buttocks, but I don’t like my feet. On a woman, I love beautiful eyes. As for no bedroom action the night before a big match, that depends on who’s in my bed! I could never choose between sex and tennis; Id’ have to say both, as long as you enjoy it.”
All I have to say about that quote is “Well All Righty Then Big Boy!” 😉
The World No. 8 did the photoshoot in Monte Carlo earlier this year. Cosmopolitan features different celebrities in nude centerfolds each month to aid UK’s leading male cancer campaign. Through its centerfolds, the magazine has helped raise vital funds for the 39,000 men a year diagnosed with male-specific cancer.
And, more seriously, the man with great moves on the tennis court makes a more phenomenal move for Charity! Go Tsonga!
