Horst Skoff (August 22, 1968 – June 7, 2008) was a professional tennis player from Austria, who won four tournaments at the top-level.
Skoff was born in Klagenfurt, Austria, and turned professional in 1985. He won his first top-level singles title in 1988 at Athens. Over the course of his career he won four top-level singles titles and two tour doubles titles. His career-high rankings were World Number 18 in singles and World Number 70 in doubles. His career prize money totalled US$1,651,858.
Skoff played on Austria's Davis Cup team for nine years, compiling a 22-17 record. He helped the team reach the World Group semi-finals in 1990. Memorable Davis Cup rubbers which Skoff was involved in include a 6–7(5), 7–6(7), 1–6, 6–4, 9–7 win over Mats Wilander in the 1989 quarter-final; and a 6–3, 7–6(4), 4–6, 4–6, 3–6 loss to Michael Chang in the 1990 semi-final.
Despite Skoff's relative success during his career of winning four top-level tournaments, his memorable Davis Cup moments, and reaching a career high world ranking of 18 in singles competition, he never managed to progress beyond the second round at any Grand Slam event.
