Los Angeles -- UCLA sophomore Sara Walker headlines a list of three UCLA women's tennis players named Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Americans on Friday.

The only 20-match winner for UCLA in 2001, Walker finished the year with a 25-11 overall record, reaching the second round at the NCAA Singles Championships in May. It is the second such honor for Walker as she was also named to the All-America team in 2000.

Also earning All-America accolades on Friday was the doubles team of Petya Marinova (Mississauga, Canada) and Lauren Fisher (Pittsburgh, Pa.). UCLA's No. 1 doubles team all season, the duo reached the quarterfinals at the NCAA Doubles Championships and finished the season with a 23-16 overall record and a No. 13 ITA ranking.
