María Antonia Sánchez Lorenzo (born 7 November 1977) is a retired Spanish professional tennis player.

Her highest WTA ranking has been World No. 33, a position she achieved on April 5, 2004.

She played two handed on both sides, and her favourite surface was the hardcourt, being both of this unusual for a Spanish tennis player.

At the 2005 French Open, Lorenzo defeated reigning champion Anastasia Myskina in 3 sets in the first round, which became the first time the reigning champ of the French open lost in the first round.[citation needed]
