Carlos Moya Llompart (Catalan: Carles Moyà, Spanish: Carlos Moyá; born 27 August 1976) is a former World No. 1 tennis player from Spain. He was the French Open singles champion in 1998 and was the singles runner-up at the 1997 Australian Open. In 2004, he helped his country win the Davis Cup. He currently resides in Switzerland. Although he plays with his right hand, he is naturally left-handed - the opposite of fellow Majorcan Rafael Nadal.

He is one of four currently active players to have won over 500 matches at ATP level. Roger Federer is top with 664, while Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick, have 514 and 505 respective wins prior to the 2009 U.S. Open. This ranks Moya second out of all currently active players at 573 wins. A running total can be found here.

Moyá was born in Palma, Spain. He began playing tennis at six years old with his parents. Carlos turned professional in 1995 and won his first tour title later that year in Buenos Aires. He previously dated Italian Flavia Pennetta. The two split in 2007. He is dating Spanish actress Carolina Cerezuela and the couple are expecting their first child together.
