Leonardo Tavares

Leonardo Tavares (born February 20, 1984) is a Portuguese professional tennis player. He competes on the ATP Tour. In August 2010, he achieved a career-high singles world ranking of no. 186.

Tavares has mainly played in the futures circuit. However, a breakthrough year in 2009 led him to his first Challenger final in August.

He also regularly plays in the Davis Cup.
