Junior career[edit]

Jeanpierre was a world number one ranked junior and had wins over Roger Federer, Lleyton Hewitt and David Nalbandian during his junior years.

In 1996, he was the U16 Orange Bowl champion.

He and Arnaud Di Pasquale were doubles runners-up in the 1997 French Open.

He reached the third round of the 2004 French Open, as a qualifier, winning both of his matches in straight sets, over Slovakian Karol Beck and 27th seed Vincent Spadea.[3] Countryman Michaël Llodra then ended his run.[3] Jeanpierre also took part in the doubles with Édouard Roger-Vasselin and they made it into the second round, defeating Julien Boutter and Antony Dupuis.[3]
