Ky?ko Nagatsuka (Japanese: ?, born February 22, 1974) is a retired Japanese female tennis player. She reached her career-high ranking of world No. 28 on 14 August 1995. In doubles, she reached as high as No. 31 in June 1995.

She won the 12-and-Under championships of Japan in 1986, and the Under-16 in 1989.[1]

Nagatsuka reached three singles finals on the WTA Tour, but failed to win the title in any of them. She did, however, win two doubles titles as well as achieving a further three runner-ups in doubles competition. She reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam tournament twice in singles: at the 1995 Australian Open, where she beat a young Martina Hingis and Amy Frazier, and that same year at the French Open.

Playing for the Japan Fed Cup team, she has a win/loss record of 2-4.

Since her retirement, she has briefly worked as a coach with Akiko Morigami.[1]
