Michaëlla Krajicek (Czech: Michaela Krajíčková) (born 9 January 1989) is a Dutch professional tennis player. Her highest WTA ranking (singles) was number 30 on 11 February 2008. She currently is the second best ranked player from the Netherlands behind Arantxa Rus.

Michaëlla Krajicek was born on 9 January 1989 in Delft. She is the younger half-sister of former professional tennis player and Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek, and she is therefore nicknamed Kleine Kraai (Little Kraai).

An article in a Dutch newspaper with statements from the Fed Cup captain Manon Bollegraf caused Krajicek to stop participating for the Dutch team. Bollegraf commented on Krajiceks relationship with her coach Allistar McCaw. In April 2010 Krajicek confirmed she was in a relationship with McCaw. McCaw started as her fitnesscoach in 2007. In 2011 she returned in the Fed Cup team after resolving her differences with Bollegraf.
