PALM SPRINGS, Calif. – For the second straight day, Ole Miss men’s tennis sophomore William Kallberg was involved in a big win at the National Collegiate Tennis Classic.  Friday, he teamed up to knock off the No. 5 ranked doubles team in the nation, and on Saturday, he took down a top 20 ranked player in singles in straight sets.

Kallberg, ranked No. 95 in singles, defeated No. 19 ranked Nathan Pasha of Georgia 7-5, 6-4.   With his two wins so far, Kallberg improved to 11-3 overall.

Freshman Stefan Lindmark also picked up a great win, defeating California’s Christoffer Kongisfeldt, ranked No. 42 in the nation, 6-0, 0-6, 6-4.

Both senior Adrian Forberg Skogeng and junior Johan Backstrom had chances to win their matches, but suffered three-set losses.  Forberg Skogeng actually had match points against Garrett Brasseaux of Georgia. He served for the match at 5-4 in the second after winning the first set 6-4 but Brasseaux rallied to win 7-5 and got the third set 6-4.

Backstrom faced 16th-ranked Hernus Pieters of South Africa and nearly upset the South African.  After dropping a close first set 6-4, Backstrom came to back to win the second 7-5.    Pieters edged Backstrom 6-4 in the third.

The final singles win of the day came from senior Jonas Lutjen, who downed Cal’s Ricky McLaughlan.

The Rebels won another big doubles match.  Kallberg and Forberg Skogeng had a big win on Friday, knocking off the No. 5 ranked team.  This time, it was their teammates, Backstrom and Lindmark, who came up with a big win, defeating the No. 7 ranked team of Ben McLachlan and Ricky McLachlan 8-7(8).
