Andrew Painter (born 18 July 1975) is a former professional tennis player from Australia.[1]


Painter was a doubles specialist and appeared in the men's doubles main draw of the Australian Open three times, with Neil Borwick in 1996, Jamie Holmes in 1997 and Toby Mitchell in 1999.[2] He wasn't able to progress past the first round in any of his appearances but did make the second round of the 1998 Wimbledon Championships, partnering Holmes.[2] The pair defeated Czechs David Škoch and Petr Luxa.[2]

He played in the main singles draw at the 1995 Wimbledon Championships and faced top seed Andre Agassi on centre court in the opening round.[2] The Australian was beaten in straight sets.[2]

At the 2000 Grand Prix Hassan II, an ATP Tour tournament, Painter and Lars Burgsmüller made the doubles final, which they lost to Arnaud Clément and Sébastien Grosjean.[2] He won four Challenger doubles titles during his career.[2]
