TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The Ole Miss men’s tennis team had a solid day at the USTA/ITA Southern Regionals Friday, with both doubles teams advancing to the third round and two Rebels reaching the quarterfinals in singles.

The day began with doubles, and both of Ole Miss’ teams won their second round match.  William Kallberg and Stefan Lindmark defeated Timo Kranz and Romain Lefevre of New Orleans 8-4.  Johan Backstrom, playing his first match of the year for the Rebels, teamed up with Oxford native Zach Wilder for an 8-5 win against LSU’s Justin Butsch and Harrison Kennedy.

In singles, both top-seeded Nik Scholtz and fifth-seeded Kallberg advanced to the quarterfinals with two wins each.  Scholtz had to go three sets again Friday in his second round match against Tulane freshman Chin-Yan Jao.  The defending champion won the first set 6-2, but then Jao won the second set tiebreaker 7-6(5).  Scholtz grabbed the third set 6-3 to advance.  In the round of 16, Scholtz played his third tiebreaker of the tournament but won it on his way to a 7-6(3), 6-2 win against Mississippi State’s Jordan Angus.  Scholtz will face Auburn’s Lukas Ollert, the tournament’s sixth seed, in the quarterfinals Saturday.

Kallberg also advanced to the quarterfinals with two straight set wins.  In the second round he defeated Tuki Jacobs of South Alabama, 6-1, 7-5.  In the round of 16, Kallberg took out Dominik Koepfer of Tulane 6-4, 6-3.  He will face the No. 2 seed, Chris Simpson of LSU, in the quarterfinals Saturday. Simpson defeated Kallberg’s teammate, Stefan Lindmark 7-6(5), 7-6(4), in the third round.
