With the U.S. Open in full swing, StyleList caught up with home country hottie Andy Roddick while he was promoting the new Lacoste Challenge fragrance at Macy's in Queens, New York last weekend.

But make no mistake about it. The 27-year-old tennis star doesn't claim to be a style expert.

"My personal style is pretty much what you're seeing right now," Roddick told StyleList with a shrug, while dressed in a gray Lacoste tee with signature alligator logo, a lived-in looking pair of jeans, and dark gray Lacoste cap.

And we're guessing wife Brooklyn Decker -- a Victoria's Secret model and Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition covergirl -- likes him manly, because Roddick's personal grooming is even more low-maintenance.

"There's really no routine. I shave once every ten days. No manscaping for me -- I'm not one for that," said Roddick.

Time most likely doesn't allow for more. Roddick has been stacking training reps on the court daily, and managing a lean protein diet that's supplemented with plenty of stretching and massage to guard against the kinds of injuries that have sidelined him in recent years.

Roddick's model-looks have kept him busy off the court, too. He has been People magazine's Sexiest Athlete, and has most recently signed on as the new face of Lacoste's Challenge fragrance -- though he had previously fronted the brand's line of watches, apparel and eyewear since 2005.

We leaned in for a whiff of the fragrance of the moment. The juice is young and energetic, with tangerine-lemon citrus and ginger notes blended into a masculine woody base.

But for now, it's all about tennis for the U.S. Open competitor. With his hopes high for victory, the Nebraska native has personal advice for anyone watching the tournament who dreams of being a tennis star.

"You can't control your opponent, what your parents are telling you, or what the weather conditions are. But the one thing you can control on a daily basis is how hard you work and what you put into it. It all comes down to your effort level."
