Gilles Valere Jacque Elseneer (born 6 March 1978 in Brussels) is a retired professional tennis player from Belgium. He is mostly known for his grass court game, and has achieved his best results on this surface, including a quarterfinal appearance at 's-Hertogenbosch in 2001.

Tennis career

Pro tour

He reached his career-high singles ranking of World No. 97 in July 2004. This was arguably the strongest year of his career, in which he reached the second rounds of the French Open (l. to Gustavo Kuerten) and Wimbledon (l. to Ivo Karlovi?), and won the challengers of Heilbronn and Sarajevo.

Elseneer made a claim in September 2007 that he was offered money to throw a match against Potito Starace at Wimbledon 2005.[1]


He is now coaching and teaching tennis within his father's tennis academy (royal tennis club de Belgique) in Brussels.
