Amanda Coetzer (born 22 October 1971 in Hoopstad, South Africa) is the most accomplished female professional tennis player from South Africa.
Coetzer turned professional in 1988 and retired in 2004. She won her first top-level singles title in 1993 in Melbourne, and her second later that year in Tokyo.
Coetzer entered the top-20 on the women’s world rankings in 1992 and remained there for most of the next 10 years.
