Lee Childs (born 6 November 1982, in Yeovil) is a retired British tennis player from England.

Following match victories in 2000, Childs was hailed as "the future of British tennis" and a successor to Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski.[1] At the 2003 Wimbledon Championships, he famously defeated Nikolay Davydenko in the first round in 5 sets. The score was 2–6, 7–6(2), 1–6, 7–6(5), 6–2. He then lost in the next round to a 17-year-old Rafael Nadal in straight sets, 6–2, 6–4, 6–3.
