tommy robredo, is that you?

More from the hairstyle files: Frenchman Jeremy Chardy became fodder for Andy Roddick‘s campaign for a Wimbledon singles title (Andy’s twice been a runner-up), falling to the American 6-3, 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-3. Roddick only had nine unforced error and hit 46 winners, including 20 aces.

Who knew that under all that hair would be a Tommy Robredo 2.0? Perhaps Jeremy’ll consider being more like Tommy and doing some, uhm, modeling

What do you think of Jeremy’s new ‘do? Tell us!)

and the burt’s bees award goes to…

The freckly Jeremy Chardy turned his second-round loss to Nole Djokovic at the Australian Open into his first appearance in an ATP Tour final. He lost to compatriot Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the inaugural South African Open in Johannesburg.

Chardy’s giving Philipp Kohlschreiber a run for his money in the luscious lips department.

trophy watch: tsonga rams chardy and cilic goes back for seconds

The inaugural South African Open in Johannesburg saw an all-French final between hitting partners Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Jeremy Chardy. Tsonga, who did not drop a set all week, earned $79,000 for his 6-4, 7-6 (5) performance. This is his third career title and first of 2009.

Props to the tourney organizers for coming up with a one-of-a-kind memento of Tsonga’s achievement, however Lord of the Flies it may be. I’m just going to think that those aren’t real horns; I’ll sleep better at night.

And in Croatia, two lanky locals — Marin Cilic and Mario Ancic — played in the finals of the PBZ Zagreb Indoors. Cilic’s 6-3, 6-4 win gives him his second title in five weeks and his third overall. He also now has a 13-1 match record for 2009, an ATP-best.

In Vina Del Mar, Chile, Fernando Gonzalez took home his fourth Movistar Open title by beating Jose Acasuso 6-1, 6-3.

serbia’s greatest export

Who knew that Victor Troicki could be as animated as his fellow Serbian, Novak Djokovic?

It’s hard to contain his excitement, perhaps, of finally making some noise in these past few weeks; he’s reached back-to-back quarterfinals, first losing to Andy Roddick at the Japan Open 6-3, 6-4 and then to German Mischa Zverev 6-4, 3-6, 7-5.

Now that he’s shown us a full range of facial expressions, we can’t wait to see him battle Nole in the striptease competition.

Rest o’ the draw: The semis — Santoro‘s through after Mathieu retired, and will face either Kunitysn or the gorgeous Chardy. Meanwhile, Kolya and Marat (de facto final?) are duking it out to see who’ll take on Zverev.

shirtless: jeremy chardy

Count 21-year-old Jeremy Chardy as one of the ATP upstarts who made a splash at this year’s French Open. He took out sixth seed David Nalbandian and then 30th seed Dmitry Tursunov before falling to 2008 claycourt “it” player Nicolas Almagro in the round of 16. (That battle with Almagro included two tiebreakers and a 7-5 third set!)

Wearing his standard issue from Lacoste.

Freckles! Also, notice the white bandana they’ve put on him. Good call from the French brand.

lacoste standard issue: the women pull ahead

We’re always eagerly anticipating the standard issues that Lacoste doles out for each Grand Slam, and the ones for Roland Garros turned out just fine — at least for the ladies.

Gisela Dulko wore the halter from the Fine Stripe line in her loss to Alize Cornet in the second round. Cornet, the 19th seed, also wore the tank but spaghetti-strap style; she lost to Agnieszka Radwanska in the round after.

Mathilde Johansson faced Serena Williams in the second round. She wore the Racerback Tennis Dress with detachable flower, $145. Meanwhile, Petra Cetkovska (middle and right) put on a layer when it got a little chilly.

And Mike Frey over at Tennishead continues to help out TSF with this photo of this player (can anyone help me out with a name?) wearing the polo.

Unlike the 2007 French Open, which saw Lacoste give their male sponsors the cutest orange and white polos, 2008 was way bland. Michael Llodra and Jeremy Chardy — as delicious as they are — couldn’t quite bring this Heritage Check Print Polo to life. (If you want to grab the jacket, it’s still available at lacoste.com.)

As usual, Arnaud Clement and Fabrice Santoro are off doing their own things.
