Bio Aline Terry was an American tennis player active at the end of the 19th century. She was born in Princeton, New Jersey.

Terry won both the singles and the doubles title in the 1893 U.S. National Championships (now called the US Open) also the Staten Island tournament. In the singles she defeated Augusta Schultz in two sets of 6–1 and 6–3, and she played the doubles with Harriet Butler defeating Augusta Schultz and M. Stone in two sets of 6–4 and 6–3.

In the 1894 Nationals she "sat out" as the holder until the last match, the Challenge Round. Here Helen Hellwig, who played through, defeated Terry 7-5 3-6 6-0 3-6 6-3. Terry was below her 1893 form, running to the net very often and making several errors with volleys. Aline limited herself to doubles only as her partner Bessie Morre was ill before the event.

The New York Times described her as heavily practising at the Staten Island Tennis Club in Livingstone.
Fellow US Champion Juliette Atkinson said Terry was as “soft as a cat on a banana and ran after the balls like a tiger." Terry was known as a hard hitter.
Aline never had the chance to play Mabel Cahill, the 1891-1892 US Champion who did not defend her title in 1893. There was some speculation in the press that Cahill was superior. Most experts also thought Aline would stand little chance vs Lottie Dod, the Wimbledon champion at the time, but as the two never met it is pure speculation.

According to Bud Collins, there is little more known about Aline Terry other than that she did not compete in the championship again after 1894. She falls completely out of sight.
