Retired: Christophe Rochus

Christophe 'Rokkon' Rochus

One half of the diminutive Rochus brothers, Christophe is the older brother and arguably the less successful, however he did have 2 tour level runner-ups along the way. He had success on the Challenger circuit but is most famous for his revelations from retirement about alleged doping amongst his peers. This is not new news of course in tennis, but so far his has just been conjecture.

Reason to retire: Age
Career titles: 0
Win/Loss Record: 118/219
Career High Ranking: 38 (2006)
Finest moment: Winner of 5 Challenger tournaments
Famous For: Alleging that many players on tour take performance enhancing drugs

Watch: vs. Nadal

  1. I remember him when he beat Juan Ignacio Chela in QF of Hamburg 2005. I think it was one of the best Christophe Rochus’ matches.
