Andy Roddick's Lacoste Campaign Gets Thumbs Up from Model Wife

Smelling fabulous while slamming down aces can be a tough task but one of tennis’ most talented is up for the Challenge! Lending his handsome face to Lacoste’s fragrance, Challenge, Andy Roddick reminisced to PEOPLE about his early cologne memories. “My dad had this green bottle when I was young and I remember we used to do family dinner on Thursdays, I was 8 or 9-years-old and that was big because he would let me wear his cologne and I thought I was pretty cool,” said the king of the court, who celebrated both his 28th birthday and a victorious first U.S. Open match on Monday. And although Andy’s off-court style is as casual as the athlete himself — with a uniform of a hat, jeans and a polo — he admits that photo shoot moments should probably be left to his supermodel wife, Brooklyn Decker. “I’m a little awkward and she’s really good at it so she likes to kind of hear stories and stuff,” he said. So, was she impressed with the outcome? “She was excited about it and kind of saw the campaign and she actually liked it so that was a relief.” And after all, the top ten-ranked player in the world has other things to jangle his nerves. “The day that I’m not nervous for a match will probably be more alarming than if I am.” –Jessie Goldberg
