Jeffrey Alan Morrison (born February 4, 1979) is a retired American professional tennis player.


Morrison was the last American male left in the singles draw at Wimbledon in 2002, going on to defeat future World No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero en route to the third round.[1]

Morrison attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he played for the Florida Gators men's tennis team in National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) competition. He defeated James Blake of Harvard University in the NCAA Singles National Championship final in 1999. Morrison was a two-time All-American during his sophomore and junior seasons. He was inducted into the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a "Gator Great" in 2012.[2][3]

During his career, Morrison won three Challenger events and reached as high as World No. 85 in singles and World No. 81 in doubles (both in the summer of 2002).
