Stephen Huss (born 10 December 1975 in Bendigo, Victoria, to Åke Karl Huss and Birgit Huss), is a professional tennis player from Australia. He is also citizen of Sweden.

He, along with partner Wesley Moodie, became the first qualifier to win the Wimbledon men's doubles championship in 2005, beating the 6th, 9th, 3rd, 1st & 2nd seeds in the process. His Wimbledon title was only his second doubles title on the ATP tour after his 2002 success at Casablanca with Myles Wakefield.

Huss played tennis collegiately at Auburn University in the United States from 1996 to 2000, where he was an All-American in doubles in 1998 and in singles in 2000. Huss played in the NCAA Tournament in both of those years for the Tigers. An All-SEC selection in 1998, he was the 1999 National Clay Court Champion along with partner Tiago Ruffoni. His 93 career doubles victories is an Auburn record.

His grand slam success saw him soar from 101st to 32nd place in the ATP Doubles ranking. He reached a career high 22nd place in October 2005.

He currently resides in San Diego, California, USA, with his wife, Milagros Sequera, whom he married in the Dandenong Ranges, near Melbourne, Victoria Australia, on 29 December 2009.
