Petra Mandula (born January 17, 1978 in Budapest) is a Hungarian tennis player, who represented her native country at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. There she was eliminated in the first round by Amanda Coetzer of South Africa. Four years later, when Athens, Greece hosted the Games, she once again was defeated in the first round, this time by Patty Schnyder of Switzerland.

She reached the quarters at the 2001 French Open as a qualifier, winning seven straight matches and losing to eventual runner-up Kim Clijsters. Two years later, at the 2003 French Open, she almost repeated the feat, losing in the 4th round 7-5 in the third set to Chanda Rubin.
