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.

Both doubles teams competing had first round byes and will begin action Friday.  Kallberg and Lindmark will play Kranz and Levfre of New Orleans in the first round, while Wilder and Johan Backstrom will face off against Butsch and Kennedy of LSU.
