Magnus Norman (born 30 May 1976 in Filipstad) is a retired Swedish professional tennis player who is best known for being the runner up at the French Open in 2000 and for briefly being ranked World Number 2. He won 12 singles titles, including a Tennis Masters Series tournament in Rome, Italy.

Norman reached his career high ranking of World Number 2 on 12 June 2000. This ranking resulted from his success during the first half of the year. He reached the semifinals of the Australian Open and was the runner-up at the French Open, losing to Gustavo Kuerten of Brazil. At the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, he lost in the third round to Frenchman Arnaud di Pasquale in straight sets.

Norman underwent corrective surgery for a heart valve condition in 1998. He retired due to hip and knee injuries in 2004. Magnus is the current coach of Robin Söderling.
