Amy Frazier (born September 19, 1972) is a former professional 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 18 Australian Open, 18 Wimbledon, and 15 French Open tournaments for an all-time record of 71 Grand Slam appearances, until compatriot Venus Williams surpassed this record at the 2016 US Open. In 1992 she qualified for year ending WTA Tour Championships, where she lost Gabriela Sabatini.
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, six times in the fourth round, and both of her quarterfinal matches. Her all-time Grand Slam record is 73-71. Frazier 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 WTA Tour match at the 1999 TIG Tennis Classic, played at the La Costa Resort and Spa outside San Diego. During the third set, Graf retired and never played again.
Frazier won eight career titles and was a finalist seven 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 eight finals in two different events in Japan.
She was also a member of United States Fed Cup team.
Frazier played her last professional tour match at the 2006 US Open. She never officially announced her retirement. After leaving the WTA Tour, she continued to be actively involved in tennis taking up a coaching role at the Franklin Athletic Club, Michigan (her local tennis club where she was first introduced to the sport at three years of age).
In December 2015, Frazier won the USTA National W40 Hardcourt Championships at La Jolia, California. At 43, it was her first USTA National Senior tournament since leaving the pro tour.
Frazier was inducted into the USTA Midwest 2018 Hall of Fame.
Frazier is married and has a daughter.
