Ryan Henry (born 14 October 1984) is a former professional tennis player from Australia.[1]

Henry had an eventful year as a junior in 2002.[2] He and partner Todd Reid won the boys' doubles title at the 2002 Australian Open and they also finished runners-up in the 2002 French Open.[2] In Wimbledon that year he created a tournament record when he defeated France's Clément Morel 26–24 in the final set.[2] Constantly interrupted by rain, their encounter lasted three days.[2] He lost to Richard Gasquet in the singles semi-finals of the 2002 US Open, unable to convert three match points.[3]

The following year, he was given wildcard entry into the Australian Open and met Julian Knowle in the first round.[2] He lost the match in four sets.[2] In the men's doubles he was again paired with Reid and they were able to defeat Germans Karsten Braasch and Rainer Schüttler in the opening round.[2] They were unable to get past top seeds Mark Knowles and Daniel Nestor in their next fixture.[2]
