Caroline Maes (born November 2 1982 at Dendermonde, Belgium) is a Belgian tennis player.

Maes is active in the singles game since 1997 and doubles since 1999. The highest place she ever achieved on the WTA-ranking in singles is 151th on May 28, 2007. In doubles she got to the 143rd place on July 9, 2007. She has yet to win her first WTA-tournament, but has won eight ITF-tournaments in singles and nine in doubles. Her last and most important ITF-title was the 2007 $100,000 Rome - Tiro A Volo tournament on May 19, defeating Yulia Beygelzimer and Stéphanie Cohen-Aloro in her way to the final, where she beat former top-50 player Marta Marrero from Spain. So far, she performed three top-100 wins: Yuliana Fedak (WTA-66, Hasselt 2006), Jelena Kostanić (WTA-46, Dubai 2 2006), Akiko Morigami (WTA-51, Strasbourg 2007). In 2006 she also made it to the last 16 of the doubles tournament of Miami together with Kim Clijsters.

Since May 28, 2007 she is the second best Belgian player on the WTA Rankings, after Justine Henin, due to the retirement of Kim Clijsters and the right arm injury of former top-100 player Kirsten Flipkens, forcing the latter in a long interruption off the WTA Tour. since november 2007 she is ranked third Belgian : second Belgian at WTA 151 is Yanina Wickmayer.

Fed Cup Experience

Maes was a member of the Belgian Fed Cup team in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007. She made 3 singles and 4 doubles appearances. However, she did not win any singles match and won only one doubles match partnering Els Callens against the Slovak Republic.

She is very close friends with Kim Clijsters. She made herself unavailable for selection in Fed Cup tie against China in 2007, because she wished to attend the wedding of Clijsters and American basketball player Brian Lynch that week-end (14th of July 2007) instead.
