Keri Phebus (born May 1, 1974) is a professional tennis player from the United States. During her pro career from 1991–1998, she won five titles on the ITF Women's Circuit, received a wildcard entry and won her first round match at the 1995 US Open.

Phebus was the first women's tennis player inducted into the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame. No other player has been so decorated in the history of women's tennis at UCLA.
