Younes El Aynaoui (Arabic: يونس العيناوي‎) (born 12 September 1971 in Rabat) is a professional tennis player from Morocco.

He is a five-time singles winner on the ATP Tour and reached his career-high singles ranking of Number 14 in 2003, at the age of 31. His long career has been plagued by injuries and he did not play competitive tennis between September 2008 and January 2010. However, as of December 2009, he scheduled to play at the ATP Champions Tour tournament in London, where he made his debut at the senior tour.

El Aynaoui is an extremely popular figure in Morocco. He received a gold medal – the nation's highest sporting honor – from King Mohammed VI. In a 2003 poll by leading Moroccan newspaper L'Economiste, readers named El Aynaoui their favorite role model for society, ahead of the prime minister and athletics star Hicham El Guerrouj. The center court of the Royal Tennis Club in Marrakech is named after El Aynaoui.
