Arnaud Benjamin Boetsch (born 1 April 1969) is a French former tennis player who turned professional in 1987. Known for his stylish single-handed backhand, he won 3 career titles, reaching his highest ATP singles ranking of World No. 12 in April 1996.

Tennis career

Boetsch reached the fourth round once in each of the four grand slams between 1991 and 1996, notably beating Richard Krajicek in five sets in his 1992 Wimbledon run (Krajicek would go on to win the title four years later).

Boetsch represented France at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, where he was defeated in the second round by Spain's eventual Silver medal winner Sergi Bruguera.

He currently works as a tennis commentator for France Télévisions with Lionel Chamoulaud or François Brabant.
