Christopher "Chris" Luke Guccione (born 30 July 1985), is an Australian tennis player from Greenvale, Victoria; his father is Italian and his mother is Australian.

Guccione is coached by countryman and former ATP professional Anthony Lane. Guccione is noted for his good service; he hit 50 aces in a qualifying match at Wimbledon in 2005. The good service has led fellow Australian player Mark Philippoussis to call him a "Wayne Arthurs clone". He is a serve-and-volley player. Despite these strong assets in the game he has still yet to win any ATP titles and very rarely makes it past the first round of major tournaments. During his career, he has won 5 ATP Challenger Series: hardcourt victories in Burnie and Canberra in 2005, claycourt victories in 2006 at Quito and MedellĂ­n, and a victory on hardcourt at Aptos in 2009.

Guccione burst onto the scene in the 2004 Medibank International tournament, where he defeated former World No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero. He is married to a young American woman named Andra,who travels with him.
