BERKELEY - California's Zsuzsanna Fodor has been named the 2006 Pac-10 Women's Tennis Player of the Year, announced Monday in a vote by the Conference coaches.
Fodor, who is currently ranked third in the Fila Collegiate Tennis Rankings, recently won the singles title at the Pac-10 Championships, defeating USC's Amanda Fink in straight sets, 7-6 (2), 6-3. A junior from Budapest, Hungary, Fodor posted a 33-13 overall singles record and is 15-7 in dual-match play.
Also earning honors for the Golden Bears is sophomore Suzi Babos. Babos, a native of Sopron, Hungary, was named to the All-Pac-10 second team. Babos currently holds a No. 27 singles ranking and has tallied a 25-12 overall singles record. Babos is also ranked eighth in the nation in doubles play with Fodor. The duo has amassed an 18-8 overall record.
The 11th-ranked Bears gear up for the NCAA Tournament this week, as they host Western Michigan in an NCAA Regional on Friday at Hellman Tennis Center. This marks the 25th-consecutive tournament bid for Cal, which earned a No. 10 seed.
