Aleksa Bogdanovic (Serbian: Aлeкca Бoгдaнoвић, Aleksa Bogdanović; born 1984), also known as his British nickname Alex, is a Serbian-British tennis player born in Belgrade, Serbia. Alex was brought to England by his parents Dušan and Amelija when he was seven and took up tennis as a means of making new friends.

Bogdanovic turned professional in 2002. He is the current British No. 6, with a ranking of 374 as of 28 February 2011. His highest ranking is 108, which he achieved on 25 June 2007. Bogdanovic has competed mainly in the Challenger Tour. He qualified for the 2004 US Open, losing in the first round. He received wildcards to Wimbledon every year from 2002 to 2009, losing in the first round each time.

Bogdanovic is generally regarded as a player who has never fulfilled his potential. The Times writes that "Bogdanovic has long been regarded as a player too satisfied by failure and in denial of the true facts of tennis life."
