Nicole Pratt (born 5 March 1973) is a retired professional female tennis player from Australia.

Pratt was born in Calen and received a tennis scholarship to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra. She turned professional at 18.

She became Australia's No. 1 ranked female player in January 2001. She won her first WTA Title at the Hyderabad Open and reached the third round of the Australian Open in 2004.

In August 2006, at age 33, Pratt reached her first ever Tier I quarterfinal at Toronto. Soon after this she rose back up into the top 100. During 2007 she was drafted by the Boston Lobsters of the WTT pro league.

At the 2008 Australian Open, after losing her first match to Nadia Petrova, a tearful Pratt announced her retirement from professional tennis.[1] She coached Australian female player, Casey Dellacqua. After the 2009 Australian Open, Nicole Pratt and Casey Dellacqua decided to go different ways.[2]
