Frew Donald McMillan (born 20 May 1942 in Springs, South Africa) is a former professional male tennis player from South Africa.

He won five major doubles championships including three Wimbledons with Bob Hewitt. The most notable aspect of his game was that he had both a two-handed backhand and forehand, which simultaneously increased his power while restricting his mobility. In the 1967 Wimbledon, the pair did not lose a set, and McMillan did not once lose a service game.

McMillan was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island in 1992. He works as a tennis commentator for Eurosport and on BBC Radio 5 during Wimbledon.
