Maureen Elizabeth Drake (born March 21, 1971)[1] is a Canadian former professional tennis player.

Her career-high WTA singles ranking is No. 47, which she reached on September 13, 1999. Her career high doubles ranking is No. 77, set on October 30, 2006.

After Drake qualified for the round of 16 at the 1999 Australian Open, Canada did not have a Canadian reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam event until Aleksandra Wozniak at the French Open in 2009.[2]

Drake retired in April 2011 but returned to professional tennis in July 2014. In August 2016 Drake announced her second and permanent retirement from professional tennis.
