Niclas Kroon (born February 5, 1966 in Karlstad) is a former tennis player from Sweden. The right-hander turned pro in 1986 and reached his career-high singles ranking on the ATP Tour of World No. 49 in December 1989. His best performance at a Grand Slam came at the 1990 French Open, where he reached the fourth round.

During his career, Kroon was known for the 'Vicht' salute as a form of celebration. This was later adopted by Lleyton Hewitt, who bought the rights to the trademark after Kroon had mistakenly let it lapse.[1]
