Nicolas Almagro Sanchez Rolle (Spanish: Nicolás Almagro Sánchez Rolle; born 21 August 1985 in Murcia, Spain) is a professional Spanish tennis player, ranked 10 on the ATP World Tour.

Almagro won the gold medal at the 2005 Mediterranean Games by defeating compatriot Guillermo García López 6–2, 7–5 in the final in Almería, Spain.

In April 2006, Almagro won his maiden ATP tournament title – the Open de Tenis Comunidad Valenciana (Valencia, Spain). Almagro was forced to come through the qualification rounds just to make this event, but that did not stop him from winning 8 matches in a row including 3 set victories over former world #1's Juan Carlos Ferrero and Marat Safin.
