Rita Kuti-Kis (born 13 February 1978) is a former professional tennis player from Hungary.

In 1992, she was beaten by future international No. 1, Martina Hingis, in the Petits As competition, a juniors tournament at Tarbes, France which has been renowned for the discovery of young tennis talent. Kuti-Kis's most successful year was 2000, when she scored her one and only WTA Tour singles title in São Paulo. In the same year, she reached the third round of the French Open (losing to Monica Seles) and defeated then up-coming Jelena Doki? in the first round of the Australian Open.

Kuti-Kis retired from professional tennis in 2006.
