Jaime Fillol Durán (b. June 3, 1946) is a former tennis player from Chile. He played amateur and professional tennis in the 1960s and 1970s.

Fillol was ranked as high as World No. 14 in singles on the ATP Rankings (achieving that ranking on March 2, 1974) and No. 82 in doubles (January 2, 1984).

In the Open era (after 1968), Fillol won 7 singles titles and 15 doubles titles. In addition Jaime was a founding member and one of the first ATP Presidents. As President of the ATP, Jaime had a passion to create the first Pension Plan of the ATP and thus it was named after him. Jaime is also a member of the University of Miami "Hall of Fame" where he graduated in 1969.

He competed at the 1973 Davis Cup with Patricio Cornejo where he played the longest Davis Cup rubber in terms of games, eventually losing to Americans Stan Smith and Erik Van Dillen, winning the first set 9–7, the next 39-37,[1] but lost the next three sets, 6–8, 1–6, 3–6 in the 1973 American Zone Final. The second set is the world record for the most number of games in a Davis Cup set.

He was also a member of the 1975 Davis Cup team, which advanced to the semifinals, and the 1976 Davis Cup team, which made it all the way to the final, losing to Italy.

He is the older brother of tennis player Álvaro Fillol.[2]
