TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Three members of the Ole Miss men’s tennis team advanced to the third round of singles Thursday at the USTA/ITA Southern Regionals being played at the University of Alabama Tennis Center.
All five Rebels competing this weekend had a first round bye. In the second round, top-seeded Nik Scholtz defeated Daniel Bustamante of Troy 6-3, 6-7(3), 6-3. He will face Chin-Shan Jao of Tulane in the third round Friday.
Fifth-seeded William Kallberg beat Gonzalo Garcia of New Orleans 7-6(5), 7-6(3) in the second round and will meet Tuki Jacobs of South Alabama in the third round. Stefan Lindmark topped Donovan McSeveney of UAB 7-5, 6-0 and will match up against Dante Saleh of Auburn in the third round.
Redshirt freshman Vinod Gowda in search of his first win on the year, dropped another three-setter, this time to Mississippi State’s Jordan Angus, who played No. 3 and 4 for the Bulldogs last year. After losing the first set 6-3, Gowda took the second 6-4, but Angus won the third 6-3.
Oxford native Zach Wilder also lost his first match in singles, falling to Auburn senior Dennis Lengsfeld 6-2, 6-3. Lengsfeld played three and four for the Tigers last year.
