Robert LeRoy (February 7, 1885 – September 7, 1946) was a tennis player from New York in the United States, who won two medals at the 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis. He won a Silver medal in both the men's singles event and the men's doubles tournament, partnering Alphonzo Bell.[1]

Tennis career[edit]

He played collegiate tennis at Columbia University, where in 1904 and 1906 he won the National Collegiate Athletics Association singles championship. In 1907, he was a singles finalist at the U.S. National Championships, now known as the US Open, losing in straight sets to eventual seven times champion William Larned. He also won three consecutive singles titles (1907–1909) at the tournament now known as the Cincinnati Masters.[2]
