Wynne Prakusya (born 26 April 1981 in Surakarta) is an Indonesian tennis player. Prakusya's first appearance in a professional tournament occurred in 1996, when she was 14 years old. She formally went professional in 1998. Over her career, she has won 2 WTA doubles titles, 9 ITF singles titles and 17 ITF doubles titles. As a junior, her highest achievements includes reaching the 1998 Australian Open junior finals and the 1998 Wimbledon and US Open junior quarterfinals.

Her first appearance at a WTA event took place in April 1999 at the Japan Open. The first time she won a match in a WTA event was in the 1999 Wismilak International in Kuala Lumpur. In 2000, Prakusya began to attempt qualification for the main draws of Major tournaments. She also began to appear primarily at WTA rather than ITF events. Her first win in the main draw of a Major came in the 2001 Australian Open, in which she and partner Janet Lee reached Round 2 in the women's doubles. Her first tournament win on the WTA Tour was in the women's doubles of the Standford tournament in 2001, again with partner Janet Lee.

She and Lee also qualified for the WTA Tour Championships in Los Angeles in 2002.

She represented Indonesia at the 2004 Summer Olympics, this time partnered by Angelique Widjaja. Prakusya successfully represented Indonesia at the 2002 Asian Games, the 2005 Southeast Asian Games and the 2007 Southeast Asian Games, winning seven medals in total.

She was part of the Indonesia Fed Cup team in every year from 1996 to 2005. She was part of the 2004 team which saw Indonesia return to the Fed Cup World Group: in that year, Prakusya won 11 of her 12 Fed Cup matches.

She has been inactive on the professional tennis circuit since 2007.
