Jacco Folkert Eltingh (born 29 August 1970 in Heerde, Gelderland) is a former professional male tennis player and former World No. 1 doubles player from the Netherlands as well as the godfather of Princess Zita-Clara of Bourbon-Parma, granddaughter of Princess Irene of the Netherlands.[1]

He is best remembered for his success in doubles with fellow countryman Paul Haarhuis. Together they managed to win all four Grand Slam doubles titles at least once.

Eltingh reached his career-high singles ranking in February 1995, when he climbed to World No. 19, notably reaching the quarter-finals of both the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 1995. In his professional career he has won 4 singles and 44 doubles titles.

In November 2005, Eltingh was elected to the ATP Board as the player representative for Europe.
