Raoux turned professional in 1989. He represented his native country at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, United States, where he was defeated in the first round by Zimbabwe's Byron Black. The right-hander won one singles career title (Brisbane, 1992), and achieved a career-high ATP singles ranking of World No. 35 in June 1998. Raoux reached the fourth round of the 1998 Australian Open and the quarterfinals of the Paris Masters in 1990 and 1997.

He was the first man to be beaten by Roger Federer on the ATP Tour.[1]
