Sharon Walsh-Arnold (born February 24, 1952 in San Francisco, California) is a former professional tennis player from the United States.[1]

Walsh enjoyed a long career by modern standards, playing her first Grand Slam singles event in 1969 and her last Grand Slam doubles match in 1990.[2] She was a finalist at the 1979 Australian Open where she lost to Barbara Jordan. She reached the 4th round of the 1981 US Open and the final of the doubles there the following year with Barbara Potter. She did not claim a WTA Tour singles title, although she had some success against the top players, beating Hana Mandlíková in both their encounters.[citation needed] She achieved her highest singles ranking of 29 in 1984, but was more regarded as a doubles player, winning 30 titles in all.
