Stéphane Robert (born May 17, 1980) is a professional French tennis player. Since 2001, he practised with Ronan Lafaix and his famous methods into Moratoglou's Academy of Paris.

He reached his first ATP-level final at the 2010 SA Tennis Open, falling to Feliciano López 5–7, 1–6.

Robert rose to attention in 2011 when, as a qualifier, he beat former Wimbledon finalist and sixth seed Tomáš Berdych 3–6, 3–6, 6–2, 6–2, 9–7 in the first round of the French Open, having saved a match point at 4–5 in the deciding set.

Robert again receives attention at the 2014 Australian Open when as a Lucky Loser, he made it to the Fourth Round, the first Lucky Loser in history to make it to the fourth round in a Grand Slam where he was eventually defeated by Andy Murray in four sets.
