Albert Montañés Roca (born 26 November 1980 in Sant Carles de la Ràpita, Spain) is a professional tennis player from Spain.

He first entered the top 100 in 2001 and has been in the top 100 for all but 20 weeks since then. He achieved a career-high singles ranking of World No. 22 in 2010 and has won six singles titles and two doubles titles.
