Tennis career[edit]

Boetch 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.
