COLUMBIA, S.C. – The Ole Miss men’s tennis team won the doubles point for the second match in a row, but lost three sets in tiebreakers, as South Carolina rallied for a 4-2 win here Friday evening at the Carolina Tennis Stadium. The Rebels will travel to Gainesville Sunday to take on No. 15 Florida to close out the road trip.
With the point in hand, the Rebels were confident they could find three singles matches, but South Carolina won five first sets. Lindmark downed Chip Cox 6-2, 6-2 at No. 3 singles to put the Rebels up 2-0, but that would be it for the day.
Nik Scholtz came in riding a 10-match winning streak, undefeated at No. 1 singles and in the SEC, but experienced a rare off day, as Gamecock Andrew Adams handed the two-time All-American a 6-3, 6-2 loss for his team’s first point of the day.
South Carolina tied it up as Kyle Koch won a commanding first set tiebreaker 7-6(0) against Vinod Gowda and then took the second set 6-4. The match hinged on a third set tiebreaker at No. 2 singles, where Kallberg battled back to win his second set against Tsvetan Mihov, but Mihov won the third set breaker for the 6-1, 5-7, 7-6(3) win to give his team the 3-2 lead.
The match ended when freshman Ricardo Jorge dropped his third set to Andrew Schafer. After losing the first set 6-3, Jorge won the second set 6-4, but quickly fell behind 5-0 in the third set before falling 6-1.
