NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In their first action of the fall season, three members of the Ole Miss men’s tennis team won two matches in singles to advance to the third round on the opening day of the SEC Fall Classic Thursday at the Currey Tennis Center.
Oxford native Zach Wilder got the day started by coming back to beat LSU sophomore Harrison Kennedy 2-6, 6-1, 6-4. Freshman Vinod Gowda, making his debut for the Rebels, lost to Vanderbilt junior Anton Kovrigin 6-4, 6-2 in the first round.
Kallberg, ranked No. 65 in the nation, welcomed Arkansas’ Jacob Herndon to the league by handing the freshman a 6-2, 6-4 loss. The Stockholm, Sweden native will face Ryan Smith of Vanderbilt in the third round.
Lindmark also faced an SEC newcomer, in Florida’s Maxx Lipman, and defeated him 6-4, 6-1 to set up a third round meeting against Georgia senior Hernus Pieters (9-16 seed).
After a tough three-setter in the first round, Wilder battled his second round opponent, Ben Barnette of South Carolina, winning two tiebreakers to join his teammates in the third round. Wilder will face the No. 6 seed, Gonzales Austin of Vanderbilt, in the third round.
In doubles, Kallberg and Lindmark teamed up for an 8-5 win against Lakat and Schmid of Mississippi State in the second round after a first round bye. Wilder and Gowda lost a close one to Kovrigin and Mason Vierra of Vanderbilt 8-6.
