TULSA, Okla. – A long day at the tennis courts ended with two members of the Ole Miss men’s tennis team still alive in the Saint Francis Health System ITA All-American Championships being played at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center.
The day began with Lindmark winning his final prequalifying match against Marc Hermann of Nebraska 6-4, 6-1 to advance to the qualifying round.
Teammate William Kallberg, ranked No. 65 in the nation, defeated 93rd-ranked Sudanwa Sitaram of Texas in the first round of qualifying in two close sets. He won the first set 6-4 and then took the second set tiebreak 7-5 to move onto a second round meeting against Memphis’ Johnny Grimal.
As play got behind, Lindmark had to wait awhile before his first match in qualifying, but it didn’t deter the fellow Stockholm, Sweden native. Lindmark taking on MSU’s Jordan Angus, won the first set 6-3. He fell behind early 5-2, but as he did many times his freshman year, Lindmark rallied to get back on serve. At 5-5, Lindmark broke Angus and held for 7-5.
With the wins today, Lindmark improved to 6-1 on the year. He will face the winner of John Lamble (Santa Clara) and Russell Bader (Penn State) in the second round Tuesday.
The All-American Championships is the year’s first major. Kallberg and Lindmark are seeking to join teammate Nik Scholtz in the main draw, which begins Thursday.
