Arthur Fery of the Stanford University was named as a third-team Academic All-America selection by College Sports Communicators. Fery finished the season ranked No. 3 nationally in singles and No. 22 in doubles and was an ITA All-American in back-to-back seasons.

He was named the Pac-12 Singles Player of the Year, the 20th overall in program history, and earned his second consecutive first-team selection and third All-Pac-12 selection overall after a second nod from the boss in 2021.

The junior went 21-5 on the season, including an 18-4 mark at no. 1 in singles in dual play, earning the No. Fery finished his season with 14 ranked wins this season, including three in the top eight national seeds at the NCAA Tournament.

30 of Fery's 56 career singles wins came against ranked opponents. Fery joins program greats KJ Hippensteel (2001, 02), David Martin (2003), Sameer Kumar (2019), and Axel Geller (2021, 2022) in earning the honor, with Stanford having one pick in three consecutive years for the first time since 2001-03 and four selections in the past five years.

Tennis originally fell into the at-large category, but is in its first season with its own premium. The season wrapped up last weekend at the NCAA Championships, where Fery advanced to the quarterfinals in singles and round of 16 in doubles.
