Paul-Antoine Torre (born 18 May 1953) is a former professional tennis player from France.
Torre made a surprise run to the third round of the 1981 French Open. He started the tournament with a five set win over Australian Paul McNamee. In the fifth set, McNamee served for the match, but Torre broke back and went on to win 7–5. The Frenchman then beat Ángel Giménez to set up a third round meeting with top seed Björn Borg, which he lost in straight sets. He also competed in the men's doubles, with Jérôme Potier. They were unable to get past the pairing of José Luis Clerc and Ilie Năstase in the first round.
In 1982, Torre was a semi-finalist in Buenos Aires, managing wins over Angel Gimenez, Freddie Sauer and Peter Feigl. He won the first set of his semi-final against Alejandro Ganzábal, but lost in three. He played again in the French Open that season but was unable to progress past the first round, losing to Peter Elter. It would be his final year on the Grand Prix tennis circuit.
