Wang Yeu-tzuoo (Chinese: ; pinyin: Wáng Y?zu?), who also goes by Jimmy Wang, (born February 8, 1985 in Saudi Arabia) is a professional tennis player from Taiwan.

Wang's trademark look is his wearing a white baseball cap backwards.

In 2005, Wang broke into the ATP Top 100 for the first time by virtue of three straight Challenger final appearances, winning a title at Istanbul, Turkey. The 21-year-old also reached the quarterfinal round of the ATP event in Bangkok, Thailand, and lost to Rafael Nadal in the 1st round in Beijing, China at the China Open. Wang made his Grand Slam debut at Wimbledon in 2004, losing to Andy Roddick in the first round. In 2006, he reached the second round, bowing out to James Blake 3 sets to 1.
