Alexa Glatch (born on September 10, 1989) is an American professional tennis player.

She started playing tennis at the age of five. As a junior player, she won the prestigious Easter Bowl title in the Girls 14s and Girls 18s divisions and the Orange Bowl in the Girls 16s division in 2004. She achieved a World Junior Ranking of #5 in 2005, advancing to the 2005 US Open Finals in both singles and doubles. She represented the United States in numerous international competitions including Junior Fed Cup.

Glatch turned professional in 2005 and in that year reached the semifinals of the Forest Hills Tennis Classic and the second round of the US Open. She was in an accident in November 2005; her injuries included a broken right wrist and left elbow. It took her eight months until she could start regularly playing competitive tennis again. Her ranking dropped significantly as a result.
