Nenad Zimonjić (Serbian Cyrillic: Ненад Зимоњић; born June 4, 1976 in Belgrade, Serbia, then SFR Yugoslavia) is a professional Serbian tennis player who is currently ranked World No. 1 in men's doubles. He is the second tennis player from Serbia to hold the highest doubles ranking, after Slobodan Živojinović. On May 18, Nestor and Zimonjic advanced back to the top after winning four out of their last five tournaments. As of April 27,2009 he is singles ranked world no. 1167.

Zimonjić turned pro in 1995 and remained relatively unknown outside his native country until a surprise victory in the Mixed Doubles at the 2004 Australian Open. Paired for the first time with Russian Elena Bovina, he beat defending champions Martina Navratilova and Leander Paes in straight sets in an hour and nine minutes, 6–1, 7–6 (3). Alongside his current Mixed Doubles partner Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia, he won the 2006 French Open crown with a straight-sets victory over Daniel Nestor and Elena Likhovtseva, 6–3, 6–4. At the 2006 Wimbledon Championships, Zimonjić reached the final of the Men's Doubles (alongside France's Fabrice Santoro) and the quarter-finals of the Mixed Doubles.
