Christophe Roger-Vasselin (born 8 July 1957 in London, England) is a former tennis player from France.

Vasselin won two doubles titles during his professional career. Notably in his singles career, he reached the semi-finals of Roland Garros in 1983, (beating No. 1 seed Jimmy Connors in the quarter-finals), but lost to eventual champion and compatriot Yannick Noah.

His son Édouard Roger-Vasselin followed him into the profession and is currently active on the ATP World Tour.
