Brian Dabul (born 24 February 1984) is an Argentinian retired tennis player.
Dabul was an outstanding junior, reaching No. 1 in the world in January 2002 (and No. 5 in doubles).
Dabul's climb in the professional ranks was a slow one, not indicative of his status as a former No. 1 Junior player. He broke into the top-500 in 2003, the top-300 in 2004, but did not crack the top-200 until late in 2007, finishing that year ranked No. 159.
Dabul continued his slow, steady rise in 2008. In March, he reached his career-high in doubles of #88 with some good Challenger results, and then followed that up with a singles Challenger win in San Luis Potosí to reach a career-high in singles of No. 133. Three semi-final appearances in his next 4 Challengers got his ranking to No. 114 by May, but he failed to qualify into the 2008 French Open.
In 2009, he won a 7–5 victory over World No. 1 Rafael Nadal in an exhibition match. This match, which took place on the eve of the French Open, occurred when Nadal had a win-loss record of 28–0 at the French Open.
Dabul announced his retirement in 2012 due to an injury in his back.
