BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Three members of the Ole Miss men’s tennis team advanced to the final round of qualifying at the Brownsville Futures here Sunday.
Senior Marcel Thiemann has been impressive in his first two matches this weekend, dominating both opponents to advance to the final round.

He will face Mikhail Pecherkin of Russia in the final round Monday.

Kallberg reached the final round with a 6-1, 7-6(4) win over Ruadhan De Bruges of Australia and a 6-3, 6-3 victory against American Damon Gillette.
