Christian Bergström (born 19 July 1967 in Gothenburg) is a former tennis player from Sweden, who turned professional in 1985. He didn't win any titles (neither singles nor doubles) during his career, but reached three singles quarter-finals in Grand Slam tournaments: Wimbledon (1990, 1994) and Australian Open (1993). The right-hander reached his highest individual ranking on the ATP Tour on 27 January 1992, when he became World No. 32. He played two ATP singles finals, both in Adelaide (1992–93). He was also the first player to defeat Ivan Lendl in the first round of the 1992 Australian Open, snapping Lendl's record run of 40 first round victories by consecutive appearances in a grand slam. He played 4 matches for Sweden in Davis Cup and won all.
