Elena Olegovna Bovina (Елена Олеговна Бовина) (born 10 March 1983) is a retired Russian professional female tennis player. She reached her career-high singles ranking of World No. 14 in April 2005.

In June 2005, Bovina sustained a right shoulder injury, which forced her to withdraw from Wimbledon and summer hardcourt tournaments. She was scheduled to return to the tour in New Haven, where she was the defending champion. But, she reaggravated her shoulder injury, and was forced to withdraw from all tournaments through the end of the year. Afterwards her ranking fell to No. 63, her lowest ranking since 2001.

Bovina pulled out of all events she had entered in early 2006, and for some time was unranked in both singles and doubles. She returned to the WTA Tour at the Kremlin Cup in October 2006.

She has won 3 career singles titles including the Tier II Pilot Pen Tennis Open, defeating then world number 6 Elena Dementieva en route to the title. She has been a finalist in 3 singles tournaments, and has 5 career doubles titles, including the prestigious Pan Pacific Open, which she won with doubles specialist Rennae Stubbs, and the equally impressive Swisscom Challenge in Zurich, with Justine Henin-Hardenne. In addition she won the 2004 Australian Open mixed doubles title with Nenad Zimonjić, and was the runner up in the 2002 French Open mixed doubles tournament. Furthermore, she was on the victorious 2005 Russian Fed Cup squad and was also on the team from 2001–2003.
