Marcel Bernard (Template:IPA-fr; May 18, 1914 in La Madeleine, Nord – April 29, 1994) was a French tennis player. He is best remembered for having won the French Championships in 1946 (reaching the semi-finals a further three times). He defeated Jaroslav Drobný in the finals by the score of 3–6, 2–6, 6–1, 6–4, 6–3.

In the same French Open (1946), Bernard also won the Men's Doubles with Yvon Petra. In the 1935 French Open, he won the Mixed Doubles with Lolette Payot. In the following French Open (1936), he also won the Mixed Doubles with Billie Yorke and the Men's Doubles with Jean Borotra. He played Davis Cup for France over a period spanning 21 years, from 1935 to 1956. Bernard was ranked World No. 5 for 1946 by A. Wallis Myers and World No. 9 for 1947 by Harry Hopman.[1][2]

Bernard later became president of the French Tennis Federation. The French Open Mixed Doubles Cup is now known as the "Coupe Marcel Bernard". His name is also commemorated at the Roland-Garros Stadium by the walkway "Allée Marcel Bernard" which leads to the Suzanne Lenglen Court.
