Arnaud Di Pasquale (born 11 February 1979 in Casablanca, Morocco) is a former professional male tennis player from France.

Di Pasquale is best remembered for his bronze medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics in the men's singles event. He beat rising Swiss Roger Federer in the bronze medal match, but more surprising was his straight sets victory over the well established Magnus Norman of Sweden, in the tournament's third round. He also reached the fourth round of the French Open in both 1999 and 2002 and won one singles title (in Palermo, 1999).

Juniors[edit]

Di Pasquale excelled as a junior, posting a 103–25 record in singles and reaching the No. 1 ranking in December 1997 (and No. 17 in doubles).
