Libor Němeček (born 26 October 1968) is a former professional tennis player from the Czech Republic.[1]


Němeček had some success as a junior in his native country. He won the Czechoslovakian Under-14s Championship and was later the doubles winner with Cyril Suk at the Under-18s Championships.[2]

In 1989 New South Wales Open, Němeček was a quarter-finalist, securing wins over Jan Gunnarsson and then world number 51 Magnus Gustafsson.[2] He also reached the round of 16 in Kitzbuhel that year.[2]

The Czechoslovak was runner-up at the U.S. Pro Tennis Championships in 1990, but the event was no longer part of the ATP Tour.[2] After making it through qualifying, Nemecek lost in the opening round of the 1990 Australian Open to Canadian Andrew Sznajder, in four sets.[2]

He made two further quarter-finals in his career, at Wellington in 1991 and Bordeaux in 1993.[2]

Němeček is currently working as a tennis coach in Prague.[3]
