About Murphy Jensen

Murphy “Refuse To Lose” Jensen is excited to return to the Washington Kastles as the head coach for the 2010 season! Having played ten seasons of Advanta World TeamTennis himself, this will be Murphy’s first season coaching a team.

Murphy comes to the Kastles having earned four doubles titles, including the 1993 French Open doubles title with his brother, Luke. He achieved a career high doubles ranking of 17. Before turning pro, Murphy played for two years at the University of Southern California, leading the Trojans a 25-5 record in his first season. He then transferred to perennial powerhouse University of Georgia, where he was honored as an All-American.

After Murphy retired from professional tennis, he joined the Tennis Channel, hosting “Open Access” and “Murphy’s Guide,” two of the top-rated shows on the network. He also frequently takes part in charity events, most recently a charity mixed doubles tournament benefitting the Arts for the Aging at Swedish Ambassador Jonas Hafström’s home in Washington, D.C.
