Season Concludes at NCAAs - Stanford University Athletics

ORLANDO, Fla. – Stanford men’s tennis closed its campaign at the NCAA singles and doubles championships at the USTA National Campus, coming home with a pair of All-Americans in Arthur Fery and Nishesh Basavareddy. The team ends the season at No. 18 in the ITA rankings.

Fery, the No. 3 seed, reached the quarterfinals of the singles draw with wins over No. 31 Emile Hudd (Tennessee), No. 46 Noah Schachter (Texas A&M) and No. 13 Liam Draxl (Kentucky), the last of which was a rematch from Fery’s win in the NCAA Super Regionals in Lexington. Fery fell in the quarterfinals to No. 42 Murphy Cassone (Arizona State). Fery was guaranteed an All-America selection with his national seed, the second year in a row he has earned the honor.

Basavareddy, seeded No. 9-16 and guaranteed an All-America selection, advanced to the singles round of 16 with wins over No. 57 Rafa Izquierdo Luque (NC State) and No. 50 Ozan Baris (Michigan State), the latter of whom was his doubles partner in his Junior US Open victory in 2022. The freshman fell in a back-and-forth battle with the nation’s No. 2 player in the round of 16, Ethan Quinn (Georgia), 6-3, 4-6, 7-5.

Fery and Basavareddy also participated in the doubles event, opening with a win over No. 8 Ryan Goetz/Inaki Montes de la Torre (Virginia) in three sets before dropping a round of 16 battle to Pepperdine’s No. 63 duo of Daniel de Jonge and Tim Zeitvogel.

Samir Banerjee opened the singles event with a marquee win over the nation’s fourth-ranked player and No. 4 seed, Melios Efstathiou of Wake Forest, in straight sets, 7-5, 6-4. Banerjee split the first two sets of his second round matchup with Ohio State’s Alexander Bernard before being forced to retire due to injury.

Max Basing was selected for the singles bracket, but he withdrew due to injury. Stanford was one of two schools with at least four singles players in the initial selections.
