Marlene Weingärtner (born 30 January 1980) is a retired tennis player from Germany. She is a former top 40 player in both singles and doubles.

The most remarkable moment of her career was her first-round match at the 2003 Australian Open when she defeated there the defending champion Jennifer Capriati. Capriati led the encounter 6-2, 4-1, but Weingärtner fought back and won by a 2-6, 7-6, 6-4 scoreline. She eventually reached the third round.

Her best Grand Slam showings were two fourth-round appearances, the first in Melbourne 2002, the latter at the 2004 French Open.[1] In 2004, she also reached her only WTA Tour final in Bali which she lost in straight sets to Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Playing for Germany in the Fed Cup, she has a win/loss record of 2-3.

Weingärtner retired after the 2005 US Open, after suffering several first-round losses due to ongoing physical problems.[2] She made a brief return in July 2008 to play the doubles event of the Gastein Ladies tournament where she partnered Sandra Klemenschits, losing in the quarterfinals to Xu Yifan and Zhang Shuai.
