Four Earn All-Pac-12 Honors

SAN FRANCISCO – Garnering praise from the conference after another dominant season, four Stanford men's tennis student-athletes have earned All-Pac-12 accolades. Sophomore Arthur Fery was named to the first team, while freshman Max Basing was voted to the second team. Seniors Axel Geller and Alexandre Rotsaert were honorable mention selections.

Fery has enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign, which included a two-week stretch in February as the nation's top-ranked singles player. The Wimbledon, United Kingdom native holds a 20-6 singles mark, including a 10-4 record in dual action, and a 23-9 overall tally in doubles. He has 12 total wins this season over ranked opponents, and played in the top position for the duration of the season. Additionally, Fery reached the championship match at the ITA Fall National Championships in November.

One of the top first-year players in the Pac-12, Basing earned a second-team nod. Hailing from Oxshott, United Kingdom, Basing posted a 20-4 singles record with a team-leading 15-2 mark in dual action. The freshman also holds a 12-10 doubles record, and went 6-3 in singles against ranked opponents. Basing has been ranked as high as No. 34 in the country in singles and No. 31 in doubles.

Geller has consistently been one of the top players in the conference since his arrival on campus, and he earns his fourth All-Pac-12 selection with an honorable mention tally in 2022.  He is Stanford's first four-time All-Pac-12 honoree since Tom Fawcett did the same from 2015-18. Geller holds an 11-5 singles record and an 11-7 doubles mark this season, and became the 40th singles player in program history to reach 40 dual singles wins in March. His 45 dual wins now rank 33rd all-time in program history.

Rotsaert earns his second all-conference honor after a second team selection in 2019. The Boca Raton, Florida native holds a 10-7 singles mark and a 30-10 record in doubles, including six combined wins over ranked opponents. Rotsaert teamed with Fery in the fall to reach the championship match at the ITA Fall National Championships in November, with the pair ranked in the top-10 nationally for a majority of the season.

Stanford travels to the NCAA Tournament this week at Harvard, where it will take on Mississippi State in the opening round on Friday, May 6.
