Pacific Palisades, Calif. (Oct. 11, 2007) – Former French Open doubles champions Luke and Murphy
Jensen will host the inaugural Bank of the West Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic, Dec. 8, at The Riviera
Tennis Club. Nine-time Grand Slam winner Monica Seles, three-time Grand Slam champion and
Olympic gold medalist Jennifer Capriati, actor David Duchovny and musician Gavin Rossdale are
among the tennis and entertainment stars scheduled to join the Jensens for the event.

Expected to join Seles, Capriati, Duchovny, Rossdale and the Jensens are former UCLA star Justin
Gimelstob, former WTA Tour player Carling Bassett-Seguso and Robert Seguso, actors Scott Foley,
Donna Mills and Eric Braeden, as well as other stars from sports, television, music and film. The fun-
filled day of tennis and an “Evening with the Stars” gala will raise money for a number of Jensen
designated youth-oriented charities, including Jensen-Schmidt Tennis Academy for Down Syndrome,
the National Down Syndrome Society and The Riviera Foundation.

The Bank of the West Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic gets underway with a tennis pro-am from 9-11:30
a.m. on Dec. 8, followed by a kids’ clinic from 12-1:30 p.m. A pro-celebrity tennis exhibition will be
played from 1:30-4:30 p.m. The activities climax with the “Evening with the Stars” gala from 7-11
p.m. at The Riviera Country Club. The gala will feature top entertainment and a live auction.

“I am honored to be asked to co-host the Bank of the West Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic, “said Luke
Jensen. “It is going to be a special day and night that will benefit three great causes and we are
especially excited to have Monica join us for the event.”

 “I’m still a tennis player, but I also have been studying very hard to become an actor, so the fact that I
can be a part of an event that will bring tennis players and celebrities together in L.A. is just way too
cool,” Murphy Jensen said.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to participate in the Bank of the West Pro-Celebrity Tennis
Classic along with Luke and Murphy,” said Seles, who was ranked No. 1 in the world in 1991-92.
