Juliette Paxton Atkinson Buxton (née Atkinson; April 15, 1873 – January 12, 1944) was an American tennis player. She was born in Rahway, New Jersey, United States.
Atkinson was the daughter of a Brooklyn, New York physician. She won five U.S. Championships doubles titles in a row with three different partners. Both natives of Maplewood, New Jersey, she and her sister Kathleen Atkinson partnered to win the last two titles. Also the sisters twice faced each other in the semi finals of the singles competition, the first sisters to do so before the Williams sisters' final in 2001. She won three mixed doubles titles with Edwin P. Fischer.
In both 1899 and 1901, Atkinson won the doubles title and reached the singles final at the tournament now known as the Cincinnati Masters. She won the 1899 doubles title with Myrtle McAteer (falling to McAteer that year in the singles final) and the 1901 doubles title with Marion Jones Farquhar (falling in the singles final to Winona Closterman).
She was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1974.
