Caroline Maes (born 9 November 1982 in Dendermonde, Belgium) is a Belgian tennis player.

Maes is active in the singles game since 1997 and doubles since 1999. The highest place she ever achieved on the WTA-ranking in singles is 151st on 28 May 2007. In doubles she got to the 143rd place on 9 July 2007. She has yet to win her first WTA-tournament, but has won eight ITF-tournaments in singles and nine in doubles. Her last and most important ITF-title was the 2007 $100,000 Rome - Tiro A Volo tournament on 19 May, defeating Yulia Beygelzimer and Stéphanie Cohen-Aloro in her way to the final, where she beat former top-50 player Marta Marrero from Spain. So far, she performed three top-100 wins: Yuliana Fedak (WTA-66, Hasselt 2006), Jelena Kostanić (WTA-46, Dubai 2 2006), Akiko Morigami (WTA-51, Strasbourg 2007). In 2006 she also made it to the last 16 of the doubles tournament of Miami together with Kim Clijsters.

Fed Cup experience[edit]Edit

Maes was a member of the Belgian Fed Cup team in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007. She made 3 singles and 4 doubles appearances. However, she did not win any singles match and won only one doubles match partnering Els Callens against the Slovak Republic.

She is very close friends with Kim Clijsters. She made herself unavailable for selection in Fed Cup tie against China in 2007, because she wished to attend the wedding of Clijsters and American basketball player Brian Lynch that week-end (14 July 2007) instead.
