Ľubomíra Kurhajcová (born 11 October 1983 in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia) is a former Slovak female professional tennis player. She reached her career high singles ranking of No. 59 on 24 May 2004. Although she never passed the first round of a Grand Slam in seven appearances, she did get close at the 2004 French Open when she led Lisa Raymond 6–0, 5–0 in the first round and held two match points, only to lose the match 0–6, 7–5, 6–3.[1]

She reached her first ever WTA Tour final at the Pattaya Women's Open in 2003, but lost there to her compatriot Henrieta Nagyová. In doubles she is a two-time runner-up, losing the 2004 Internazionali Femminili di Palermo final (teaming up with Nagyová) and the 2005 Copa Colsanitas final with Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcová.
