OXFORD, Miss. – With the beginning of the 2013-14 season a week away, several members of the Ole Miss men’s tennis team received recognition Friday, as the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced the preseason singles and doubles rankings.
Headlining the Rebels is junior Nik Scholtz (Caledon, South Africa) who begins the year at No. 7 in the nation in singles. The two-time All-American ended the 2013 season as one of only six players in the nation to finish ranked top 20 in singles and top 10 in doubles.
Junior William Kallberg earned a preseason ranking of No. 65 in singles. The Stockholm, Sweden native was one of three Rebels to earn All-SEC honors in 2013.
Ole Miss boasts two teams in the preseason doubles rankings. The Rebels’ lone senior Johan Backstrom (Uppsala, Sweden) and sophomore Stefan Lindmark (Stockholm, Sweden) come in at No. 24, while Scholtz and Kallberg are ranked No. 28. Scholtz ended the 2013 season ranked No. 4 in doubles with fellow two-time All-American Jonas Lutjen, who graduated after an outstanding career. The duo reached the NCAA Semifinals in doubles.
The ITA also released the selections for the All-American Championships, the first major tournament of the year. Scholtz will be in Main Draw singles. William Kallberg will start in the qualifying, while everyone else will begin in the pre-qualifying.
