OLE MISS

Guthrie Back At It

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Former Rebel All-American Abby Guthrie didn't waste any time making headlines in her first tournament of the 2014 professional tennis season, and she did so in her hometown of Auckland, New Zealand.

Guthrie_Jones.jpgGuthrie and fellow Kiwi, Sacha Jones, received a wildcard into the main draw of doubles at the WTA ASB Classic this week, and the pair gave the hometown crowd something to cheer about in their first match.  Guthrie and Jones closed out the opening day of the ASB Classic by toppling the No. 2 seeds and veteran duo, Cara Black and Marina Erakovic.  Black came into the tournament ranked No. 13 in the world in doubles, while Erakovic entered ranked No. 28.  Here is a recap of the exciting match in which the Kiwi duo came back to win 3-6, 6-4, 13-11.

Unfortunately, Guthrie and Jones weren't able to continue their run, falling in the quarterfinals, but still not a bad way to begin the New Year for Guthrie.

She plans to reunite with her college teammate and doubles partner last year, Kristi Boxx, later this year.  The tandem paired together to win two titles in 2013.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.

    Gray pants with red and blue stripes on the legs have served Ole Miss football my entire life time. The blue on blue, red on red and white on white are hideous and UGLY! Leave the pants alone.
