Amy Frazier (born September 19, 1972 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a now inactive professional female tennis player from the United States.

She debuted in 1987 and was active player until the 2006 US Open in which she made her 20th consecutive appearance (a record among active players). She has also appeared in 18Australian Open, 18 Wimbledon, and 15 French Open for a total of 71 Grand Slam appearances (also a record, male or female).

Her best showing is a pair of quarterfinal appearances at the 1992 Australian Open and 1995 US Open. She has lost 30 times in the first round of her Grand Slam matches, 18 times in the second round, 15 times in the third round, 6 times in the 4th round, and both of her quarterfinal matches. Her all-time Grand Slam record is 73–71. She has over 30 wins against top 10 players and has spent 18 consecutive years in the top 100, the longest ever continuous span by any female tennis player who hasn't reached top 10.

Frazier has the distinction of being the last woman to play against Steffi Graf in a professional WTA tour match at the 1999 Acura Classic, played at the La Costa Resort and Spa outside San Diego. During the third set, Graf retired and never played again.

Frazier won 8 career titles and was a finalist 7 times. Being a flat-hitter, she excelled on hard courts and was the most successful on the Summer hard court events in California and appeared in 8 finals in two different events in Japan.

Although Frazier has not competed since the 2006 US Open, she has not officially retired publicly.
