Roberta Vinci (born 18 February 1983 in Taranto) is an Italian tennis player. As of 29 August 2011, Vinci is ranked World No. 20, on the WTA Tour Rankings. Vinci has won thirteen WTA Tour titles, six in singles and seven in doubles.

Her first title came in the 2007 Copa Colsanitas, over Tathiana Garbin. She won her second title at the 2009 Barcelona Ladies Open, over Maria Kirilenko. Her third title was at the 2010 BGL Luxembourg Open, over Julia Görges. Her fourth title was for her second victory after 2009 at the 2011 Barcelona Ladies Open, over Lucie Hradecká. Her fifth title was her first win on grass at the 2011 's-Hertogenbosch, over Jelena Dokic. Her third victory in 2011 and sixth title was in Budapest.

She and her Italian team mates Mara Santangelo, Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone beat the Belgium team 3–2 in the 2006 Fed Cup final. Justine Henin-Hardenne had to retire in the fifth and final match due to an injury in her right knee, which let Italy win their first Fed Cup trophy. With the Italian team she won also the Fed-Cup in 2009 and 2010 against the USA.
