OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss men’s tennis team is on the road again this weekend for two more big Southeastern Conference matches, as the Rebels are set to face No. 23 Vanderbilt and No. 14 Kentucky.
Coming off an important split of last week’s top-20 matches, featuring the win over No. 13 Tennessee, the Rebels are back in the rankings. However, they would like nothing better than to come away with two wins this weekend and move up in the rankings.
“We played a really good match against Tennessee, that was a great win for us,” head coach Billy Chadwick said. “We played well in singles from top to bottom. Georgia we were very competitive in the doubles — that one could have gone either way — and we were right in there in the first sets in singles. Georgia did a great job of closing out those first sets and putting us away.
“We have our sights now on Vanderbilt. They are a top-20 team and playing on the road is always tough in this league. This road swing beginning with Tennessee/Georgia and now Vanderbilt/Kentucky has made for a challenging spring break, but the guys are healthy and looking forward to the match on Friday.”
Vanderbilt enters Friday’s match at 11-3 overall and 2-1 in the SEC. They are coming off a 4-0 loss to Texas A&M last weekend. The Commodores are led by 16th-ranked Gonzales Austin at No. 1 singles. They also boast the No. 1 ranked doubles team in Ryan Lipman and Austin.
Kentucky comes into the weekend at 10-4 overall and one of two teams at 3-0 in the SEC. The Wildcats shut out Texas A&M 4-0 last weekend. They are led by 10th-ranked Tom Jomby at No. 1 singles. Jomby is 13-1 on the year.
