Oct. 21, 2013
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Ole Miss men’s tennis team will have three current players and one former Rebel in the main draw at the USTA Players’ Choice Open, when play opens Tuesday at the Highland Park Tennis Center. Junior William Kallberg and sophomore Stefan Lindmark qualified to join teammate Nik Scholtz in the 32-player draw, while former Rebel Catalin Gard is also in the field.
Both Kallberg and Lindmark won four straight matches to advance to the main draw, dropping only one set each in qualifying.
Kallberg downed the No. 4 seed, Ilya Polonsky of Russia, 6-4, 6-0 to earn his spot in the main draw. Lindmark took out David Fox of Middle Tennessee State 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 to advance.
Scholtz earned an automatic berth into the main draw with his current ATP ranking of 651 and is seeded No. 7 in the draw. He will face Alabama’s Danill Proskura of Estonia in the first round.
The tournament features numerous former and current college tennis players, including Gard, a former three-time All-American and SEC Player of the Year for the Rebels.
Play begins Tuesday, but the Rebels don’t begin until Wednesday.
