Alexia Dechaume-Balleret (born 3 May 1970) is a former professional tennis player from France.

In her career, she reached three finals on the WTA Tour: at Taranto in 1990 she lost to Raffaella Reggi, and to Brenda Schultz-McCarthy at Schenectady, New York in 1991, both Tier V tournaments. At the Tier IV event in Cardiff in 1997, she lost to Virginia Ruano Pascual in the final 6-1, 3-6, 6-2.

Her best Grand Slam performance was the fourth round at the 1994 French Open. As a wild-card entrant and the world No. 197, she beat Emanuela Zardo, Wiltrud Probst and Marzia Grossi before losing to third seed Conchita Martínez 1-6, 2-6.

She achieved more notable success in doubles, winning six titles, four with Florencia Labat, and going as high as No. 22 in the WTA rankings. On 17 August 1992, she reached her career-high singles ranking of world No. 46.

She quit tennis after a first-round defeat at the hands of Emmanuelle Gagliardi at the 2000 Australian Open.
