Luke Jensen (born June 18, 1966) is a former professional male tennis player from the United States. He attended University of Southern California from 1986–87 and earned singles All-American honors both years (doubles in 1987). He compiled a 106-57 record in seven and a half seasons as the head women's tennis coach at Syracuse University. He abruptly resigned from the University last January, following an investigation into concerns about his behavior.
Jensen attended East Grand Rapids High School, winning the Michigan state singles championship in 1983, and graduating in 1985.
As a junior Jensen reached the No. 1 junior world ranking in both singles and doubles in 1984.
Jensen gained the nickname of "Dual Hand Luke" because he was an ambidextrous player able to serve at 130 MPH with either hand. He now does on-court analysis for ESPN for their tennis coverage. He also travels the world as an instructor, motivational speaker, and ambassador for the game.
He reached his career-high doubles ranking of World No. 6 in November 1993. In that year, he won the men's doubles title at the French Open playing with his younger brother, Murphy Jensen. Jensen's career-high singles ranking was World No. 168, achieved in July 1988.
