OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss men’s tennis team could not maintain momentum from Friday’s big win against No.13 Tennessee, falling to No. 16 Georgia 4-0 here Sunday at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.

With the loss, the Rebels fell to 3-6 overall and 1-3 in the SEC, while Georgia improved to 7-5 and 3-0 in league play.  

Still trying to find some momentum in doubles, the Rebels were not able to win the point yet again, falling 8-4 at No. 1 and 8-7(2) at No. 3.  

Unlike Friday, Ole Miss could not mount a comeback after dropping the doubles point, as Georgia won all six first sets to maintain momentum.   Vinod Gowda dropped his match to Hernus Pieters 6-1, 6-1 at No. 6 singles as the Bulldogs went ahead 2-0.

Friday’s clincher, William Kallberg, lost a close first set to No. 16 ranked Austin Smith 7-5, but then Smith won the second 6-2 to increase the lead to 3-0.   Stefan Lindmark followed up with a 6-3, 6-2 loss to 77th-ranked Garrett Brasseaux at No. 4 singles for the final 4-0 score.

“They were just too good today,” head coach Billy Chadwick said.  “We had chances in the doubles, and then we had some looks in some of the first sets in singles.  We just have to get back home practice hard and get ready for another tough road trip.”

The Rebels return home to practice before hitting the road again to face No. 18 Vanderbilt and No. 22 Kentucky next weekend.
