Yannick Noah (born May 18, 1960, Sedan, Ardennes, France) is a pop-soul singer and former professional tennis player from France. He is best remembered for winning the men's singles title at the French Open in 1983, and as a highly-successful captain of France's Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams. Since his retirement from the game, Noah has remained in the public eye as a popular music performer and as the co-founder, with his mother, of a charity organization for underprivileged children.

Noah turned professional in 1977, and won his first top-level singles title in 1978 in Manila.
