Peter Blair Fleming (born January 21, 1955 in Chatham, New Jerseymarker) is a former professional tennis player from the United Statesmarker.

Fleming attended Chatham High Schoolmarker, where he won the New Jersey high school individual championship in 1972, during his junior year.

Fleming was a highly successful professional tennis player. During the 1980s, Fleming teamed up with fellow American John McEnroe to dominate the men's doubles game. The duo won 50 doubles titles together, including four at Wimbledonmarker (1979, 1981, 1983 and 1984), and three at the US Openmarker (1979, 1981 and 1983). This success triggered Fleming's famous, and modest, quote that "The best doubles pair in the world is John McEnroe and anyone", though arguably Fleming provided a perfect physical, technical and mental counterpart to McEnroe.

Fleming also played on three American Davis Cup winning teams (1979, 1981 and 1982), and helped the US win the World Team Cup twice (1984 and 1985). Fleming reached the World No. 1 doubles ranking in 1984. His career-high singles ranking was World No. 8 in 1980. Over the course of his career Fleming won three top-level singles titles and sixty doubles titles. Prior to turning professional, Fleming played tennis for the University of California, Los Angelesmarker (after transferring from the University of Michiganmarker), and won the National Collegiate Athletic Association doubles title in 1976.

Since retiring as a player, Fleming has become a tennis commentator for Sky Sports, Eurosport and the BBC.

Fleming is a keen golfer (handicap 10) and is an active member of The Stage Golf Society.

He was inducted into the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Hall of Fame.
