PALM SPRINGS, Calif. – The No. 13 nationally ranked Ole Miss men’s tennis team concluded play at the National Collegiate Tennis Classic Sunday, earning five singles wins against players from No. 6 ranked Georgia.

In a battle of top 10 players, senior Jonas Lutjen, ranked No. 5, rallied to defeat No. 8 ranked KU Singh 1-6, 6-4, 6-4.  Lutjen finished the weekend 2-1 in singles to improve to 16-4 overall.

Freshman Stefan Lindmark posted a 2-1 record, with his only loss coming to Singh.   Lindmark defeated the nation’s 42nd ranked player on Saturday.  In his final match, Lindmark beat Garrett Brassaeux of Georgia 6-2, 7-5.

Junior Johan Backstrom came back to top Marco Nunez 1-6, 6-1, 6-3, Adrian Forberg Skogeng held off Eric Diaz 7-5, 5-7, 7-6(4) and Zach Wilder rallied to defeat Casey Kay 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Sophomore William Kallberg suffered the only singles loss on Sunday, falling to Georgia’s Ben Wagland 6-4, 6-1.

Doubles play this weekend was highlighted by a pair of wins over top 10 teams.  On Friday, Kallberg and Forberg Skogeng defeated the Georgia duo of Wagland and Hernus Pieters, ranked No. 5, 8-7(3).  Saturday saw Backstrom and Lindmark edge the seventh-ranked Cal duo of Ben McLachlan and Ricky McLachlan 8-7(8).

“This was a great tournament for early in the season,” head coach Billy Chadwick said.  “We had good results, but most importantly, the team got a lot of quality matches in singles and doubles.  We are looking forward to hosting the ITA Kick-Off Weekend next Friday and Saturday, and want to encourage all our fans to come out and watch some great tennis.”

Ole Miss will host the ITA Kick-Off Weekend Jan. 25-26 at the Gillom Sports Center.  The Rebels will face Columbia at 2 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25 and admission is free.   The other two teams in the draw are Louisville and NC State.
