Jadwiga ("Jed") Jędrzejowska [jadˈviɡa jɛndʐɛˈjɔfska] (15 October 1912 – 28 February 1980) was a Polish tennis player. Because her name was difficult to pronounce for many people who did not speak Polish, she was often called by the nicknames "Jed" or "Ja-Ja".
Jędrzejowska reached the singles final of a Grand Slam tournament on three occasions, still a record for Polish tennis. In 1937 she lost to Dorothy Round in Wimbledon final and at the US Championships later that year she was defeated in the final by Anita Lizana. In 1939 she was a runner-up at the French Championships, losing in the final to Simonne Mathieu.
In women's doubles, Jędrzejowska won the 1939 French Championships with Mathieu, defeating Alice Florian and Hella Kovac in the final 7–5, 7–5. Jędrzejowska's record in other Grand Slam women's doubles finals was as follows:
- French Championships (1936): Jędrzejowska and Susan Noel lost to Mathieu and Billie Yorke
- US Championships (1938): Jędrzejowska and Mathieu lost to Alice Marble and Sarah Palfrey Cooke
At the age of 44, Jędrzejowska reached the women's doubles quarterfinals of the 1957 French Championships with partner Pilar Barril.
According to Wallis Myers and John Olliff of The Daily Telegraph and The Daily Mail, Jędrzejowska was ranked in the world top ten from 1936 through 1939 (no rankings issued from 1940 through 1945), reaching a career high of World No. 3 in those rankings in 1937.
