Richard Vogel (born 13 August 1964) is a former professional tennis player from the Czech Republic who competed for Czechoslovakia.


Vogel played in the singles draw of two Grand Slams during his career and lost five set matches in both opening rounds, at the 1989 French Open (to Aaron Krickstein) and the 1991 Wimbledon Championships (to Jacco Eltingh). His loss to Eltingh set a Wimbledon record, as it was the first occasion that four tie breaks had been played in a single match.[1] As a men's doubles player he was also unable to make it past the first round, in four attempts.[2]

On the ATP Tour he had his best result in 1992, at the Croatia Open, where he was the doubles champion, with David Prinosil. His best singles performance came at Kitzbühel in 1991, with an appearance in the round of 16, after two wins, one of which was over Cédric Pioline.

He partnered Branislav Stankovič at the 1987 Summer Universiade and the pair won the gold medal.
