Hayley Carter (born May 17, 1995) is an American tennis player. She has a career-high WTA doubles ranking of No. 26, which she achieved on 10 May 2021. Carter is primarily a doubles player. She has won two WTA doubles titles, two doubles titles on the WTA 125K series, as well as nine on the ITF Circuit.
Carter played at the Smith Stearn's Tennis Academy growing up. She also won a record 14 South Carolina state championships. Between 2009 and 2012, she won three ITF Junior Circuit singles titles, as well as one doubles title.
Carter played collegiate tennis for the North Carolina Tar Heels, where she earned All-American honors each of the four years she competed. She is the Atlantic Coast Conference's all-time leader in women's tennis singles victories with 168.
In September 2019, with Luisa Stefani as partner, they reached their first WTA doubles final at the Korea Open, and the following week, they won their first WTA Tour title together at the 2019 Tashkent Open. Thereafter, Carter established a fixed partnership with Stefani.
The Carter/Stefani duo reached the third round for the first time at a Grand Slam tournament at the 2020 Australian Open where they were defeated by 6th seeded duo Gabriela Dabrowski/Jelena Ostapenko.
They won the WTA 125k title at the 2020 Newport Beach Challenger, which was the second year in a row that Carter had won this event (w/ Ena Shibahara in 2019). They also reached the 2020 Dubai Tennis Championships quarterfinals in February, and won the 2020 Top Seed Open in Lexington in August. With that, they entered the top 40 for the first time.
Carter reached her best result at the WTA 1000 level by becoming a doubles finalist alongside Stefani at the 2021 Miami Open, being eventually defeated by the 5th seeded Japanese duo of Shuko Aoyama and Ena Shibahara. During the 2021 Wimbledon Championships, Carter injured her foot and decided to sit out the rest of the 2021 season, instead joining the coaching staff of the Vanderbilt Commodores. Carter only accepted to do two last tournaments, the Cincinnati Open alongside Sabrina Santamaria, and the US Open with Astra Sharma, before going operating on her foot.
