Dominik Hrbatý (born 4 January 1978, Bratislava) is a professional tennis player from Slovakia. Hrbatý has won six ATP titles and has been ranked as high as No. 12 in the world at 18 October 2004.

Hrbatý was born on 4 January 1978 in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia. His father was an architecture engineer and his younger brother is an umpire. When he was younger, Hrbatý was European junior competitor in skiing and from the age of 11, he focused on tennis full time.
