Elena Olegovna Bovina (Russian: Елена Олеговна Бовина) (born 10 March 1983 in Moscow, Soviet Union) is a Russian professional female tennis player. On April 4, 2005 Bovina reached her career-high singles ranking: World No. 14.

In June 2005, Bovina sustained a right shoulder injury, which forced her to withdraw from Wimbledon and summer hardcourt tournaments. She was scheduled to return to the tour in New Haven, where she was the defending champion. But, she reaggravated her shoulder injury, and was forced to withdraw from all tournaments through the end of the year. Afterwards her ranking fell to #63, her lowest ranking since 2001.

Bovina pulled out of all events she had entered in early 2006, and for some time was unranked in both singles and doubles. She returned to the WTA Tour at the Kremlin Cup in October 2006.
