Brad Pearce of UCLA and Jay Berger of Clemson lead the way into the 1985 Volvo Tennis All-American Championships starting Thursday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center at UCLA.
The four-day tournament features a 32-draw singles field and 16 doubles teams. The tournament is one of only five national collegiate events sponsored by the Intercollegiate Tennis Coaches Assn.
Pearce defeated Peter Fleming at a professional tournament here last month. The sophomore from Provo, Utah, was ranked No. 12 in the NCAA last season and finished with a 23-5 singles record.
Berger advanced to the round of 16 at this year's U.S. Open and was No. 39 in the college rankings last season. Berger, from Plantation, Fla., has separated his shoulder four times.
