Pete Sampras tennis match October 29
to benefit LSU Med Student relief efforts



Baton Rouge – The Irene W. and C.B. Pennington Foundation has announced plans to sponsor an exhibition tennis match between Pete Sampras and Todd Martin, October 29, 2006 at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center to help alleviate the financial challenges facing LSU Health Sciences Center students.

Billed as “Duel Under the Oaks”, the exhibition match and other complementing events, are being presented in cooperation with the LSU Foundation, the Tiger Athletic Foundation and the LSU Department of Athletics. Paula Pennington de la Bretonne, of the Pennington Family Foundation, is organizing the match to assist the thousands of students who were victims of either Hurricane Katrina or Rita. 100% of proceeds derived from the event will go the LSU Health Sciences Center – Student Relief Fund.




Pete Sampras became the youngest man to win the U.S. Open in 1990 when he was 19 years old. He has won seven Wimbledons, five U.S. Opens and two Australian Opens throughout his career. In 2001, Sampras won his 9th ESPY award, the ESPY award for Male Tennis Performer of the year and Record Breaking Performance of the Year. He finished his career defeating Andre Agassi in the 2002 U.S. Open to claim his 14th Grand Slam Title.

Todd Martin was a finalist at the 1999 U.S. Open and the 1994 Australian Open. He reached the semifinals at Wimbledon, the U.S. Open and the Grand Slam Cup in 1994. Martin played the Davis Cup for the United States every year between 1994 and 2002. He was twice recognized, by his peers, with the Tour Sportsmanship Award due to his abiding respect for the sport and his fellow competitors.

Sampras and Martin partnered at the Davis Cup in the United States in 1995 to win the doubles title. They competed in the 2001 Australian Open, with Martin beating Sampras in the fourth round.

The “Duel Under the Oaks” activities begin at 9 am, Sunday, October 29th at a tennis clinic for youth, ages 7 – 17 on the LSU tennis courts on the Baton Rouge campus. At noon in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center (PMAC) there will be an LSU Tennis Team Exhibition, followed by a Celebrity Match (featuring Randy Jackson of American Idol fame).

Another Reminder

If you haven't purchased your tickets for the Pete Sampras/Todd Martin exhibition being held at the Pete Maravich Center on the LSU campus in Baton Rouge on October 29th, you'd better hurry. Many people I've spoken with have told me that they have their tickets. Don't wait or you'll miss a fun day watching two of the true gentlemen of the sport.
