Jordi Burillo Puig (born 7 December 1972) is a retired professional tennis player from Spain. He won one singles title and a doubles title on the ATP Tour in his career. His style was very aggresive and powerful, hitting always the ball and serving very hard.

He won the title in Bologna and play the final of Florence in 1993. In 1995 played his last final until his retirement in Palermo. In 1997 won brilliantly the Open Castilla y León, considered best challenger of the world by this date. And, this year, the court was so fast (and consequently his game, and his hits) that only Francisco Clavet (semifinals) could end his match against Burillo. All his other rivals in the tournament gave up due to injuries.

Their more remarkable victories include Boris Becker (1992, clay) and Mark Philippoussis (1998, grass). After retiring from professional tennis, he became Julián Alonso's coach.
