Atsushi Miyagi (宮城淳 Miyagi Atsushi ) (October 19, 1931) is a Japanese former tennis player.
In 1955 Miyagi won the U.S. National Championships men's doubles title at the Longwood Cricket Club in Boston with compatriot Kosei Kamo after a five-set victory over Americans Gerald Moss and Bill Quillian. Hurricane Diane roared through New England in August 1955, flooding the tennis courts and delaying the tournament for a week. When the tournament resumed many of the leading players such as Ken Rosewall, Tony Trabert, Lew Hoad and Vic Seixas had already left which devalued the men's doubles draw.
Miyagi won the Japanese tennis championships in 1954, 1955, 1957 and 1960.
