Luke Bourgeois (born 3 March 1977) is a former professional tennis player from Australia.[1]


Bourgeois, who is the youngest of 10 siblings, won the boys' doubles title at the 1995 Australian Open, with Jong-Min Lee. They defeated Germans Nicolas Kiefer and Ulrich Jasper Seetzen in the final.[2]

His two singles appearances on the ATP Tour came at the Medibank International, in 2005 (beaten by Andrei Pavel) and 2007 (beaten by Carlos Moyá).[3] In his loss to Moyá, he held a match point, before losing in a third set tiebreak.[4]
