Pam Teeguarden (born April 17, 1951) is a former American professional tennis player in the 1970s and 1980s, ranked in the top 20 from 1970–1975 according to John Dolans Womans Tennis Ultimate Guide prior to computer rankings. She won two Grand Slam Doubles Titles and was a quarter finalist in singles at the U.S. Open and The French Open. Her father Jerry, well known coach, helped Margaret Court win the coveted Grand Slam (all four Grand Slam titles in one year) in 1970 and Virginia Wade to her 1977 Wimbledon triumph. Pam was voted the "Most Watchable Player" based on play and appearance by a group of Madison Avenue Advertising Executives or "Mad Men" while playing at the US Open. Pam played in 19 consecutive US Opens holding the record until Chris Evert played in 20. She wore the first all black tennis outfit in the history of tennis in 1975 at The Bridgestone Doubles Championships in Tokyo, starting a trend that is still popular today. Pam was the first woman tennis player signed by Nike. She played on the victorious Los Angeles Strings Team Tennis Team in 1981 and won the Team Tennis Mixed Doubles Division with Tom Gullikson in 1977 and were runner ups in the league that year.

Teeguarden won two grand slam titles:

Among Pam's doubles titles are The Canadian Open Doubles, The Swedish Open Doubles, The Austrian Open Doubles, The Argentinian Open Doubles, The Women's Games Doubles in Salt Lake City, and the Virginia Slims of Tucson Doubles.
