Evgeny Korolev (Russian: Евгений Королёв) is a Kazakhstan tennis player and the cousin of Russian former player Anna Kournikova. He began playing tennis at age four with his father and picked up his first ATP points at age 15 in three German Challengers. He can speak Russian, German, English and Spanish.

Evgeny was raised in Moscow, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union, and began playing tennis at age four with his father, Evgeny, who still coaches him and used to play hockey. Evgeny also never played the junior circuit and picked up his first ATP points at age 15 in three German Challengers which was a method used by fellow professionals Nicolás Almagro and David Ferrer. Mother, Irina, is a housewife and sometimes travels to tournaments as well. He also has one older brother, Alexey, who is his physio therapist and helps with his business matters. Evgeny also had a private tutor that helped him speak Spanish, German and English. Korolev's favorite surfaces are hard and clay courts and he considers the backhand his favorite shot, although he admits to generating more power off his forehand wing.

Evgeny began playing the main tour in 2004 at the age of 16, Evgeny began playing Challengers and Futures in order to become physically stronger and took the respective circuits apart with a brutal run of wins. At the age of 16 Evgeny lapped up his first future towards the end of 2004 and compiled an extremely respectable win loss record at such as young age.
