Olivier Rochus has won 2 singles titles in his career and achieved a stunning victory in the French Open in 2004 where he won the doubles title partnering fellow Belgian Xavier Malisse. In May 2006, he reached the final of the ATP tournament in Munich, setting up the first ever all-Belgian men's singles final against Kristof Vliegen. He won that final in straight sets (6–4, 6–2).

Perhaps his biggest win was at Wimbledon in 2002, where he overcame top ten player Marat Safin in four sets 6–2 6–4 3–6 7–6(1). Safin was able to get a measure of revenge at the 2006 U.S Open, defeating Rochus 6–3, 6–2, 6–3.
