Frederick V. McNair, IV (born July 22, 1950, in Washington, D.C.) is a former professional tennis player from the United States who reached the World No. 1 doubles ranking in 1976. That year, he teamed up with Sherwood Stewart to capture the men's doubles titles at French Open, the German Open and the Masters. McNair was also a mixed doubles runner-up at the French Open in 1981, partnering Betty Stöve. In 1978, he was a member of the US team that won the Davis Cup. In nine years on the professional tour, McNair won 16 doubles titles. His career-high singles ranking was World No. 67.

Prior to turning professional, McNair played tennis for the University of North Carolina, where he was a four-time All-American and an NCAA doubles finalist in 1973.

Since retiring from the tennis tour, McNair has become the President of McNair & Company Inc., a family practice founded by his grandfather in 1931 which uses life insurance in estate planning and executive benefits arena. He won the United States Tennis Association 35-over tennis title in 1989 and 40-over title in 1995.

McNair's father, Frederick V. McNair III; his grandfather, Frederick V. McNair, Jr.; and his great-grandfather, Frederick V. McNair, Sr., all were graduated from the United States Naval Academy.
