OXFORD, Miss. -- The Ole Miss men’s tennis team is set to begin the 2013-14 season at the inaugural SEC Coaches Championship in Nashville, Tenn.

This tournament replaces the SEC Indoor Championships which was held every January.  It features all 13 teams from the nation’s top conference, which boasted 10 teams in the final top 25 last year.

The tournament starts Thursday morning with two rounds of singles followed by two rounds of doubles. Friday features the third and fourth round of singles followed by the third round of doubles. Singles quarterfinals will be on Saturday, followed by doubles quarterfinals and semifinals.  Play wraps up Sunday with the singles semifinals and finals and the doubles final.

Four of the Rebels will compete this weekend, led by junior William Kallberg (Stockholm, Sweden), who begins the season ranked No. 65 in the nation in singles. He will be joined by sophomores Stefan Lindmark (Stockholm, Sweden) and Zach Wilder (Oxford).  Marking his debut this weekend will be redshirt freshman Vinod Gowda (Bangalore, India).

“We are very excited about the start of the season,” head coach Billy Chadwick said.  “As always the SEC is the toughest league in the nation, and our SEC Coaches Championship is one of the premier fall events.”

In his first collegiate match, Gowda will play Vanderbilt junior Anton Kovrigin. Wilder will face LSU’s Harrison Kennedy.  Both Kallberg and Lindmark received a bye in the first round.  Kallberg will face Arkansas’ Jacob Herndon and Lindmark will face Florida freshman Maxx Lipman, in the second round.

Both doubles teams received first round byes.  Kallberg and Lindmark will face a freshmen Mississippi State duo of Florian Lakat and Tassilo Schmid.   Gowda and Wilder will face the winner of a Vanderbilt vs. Arkansas matchup.

All-American Nik Scholtz, who is ranked No. 7 in the nation, represented his country (South Africa) in Davis Cup last weekend and is not competing this weekend.  Johan Backstrom is recovering from an ankle injury and is expected to be back in action in a couple of weeks.

The Rebels ended the 2013 season ranked No. 10 in the nation, earned their 20th consecutive NCAA appearance and won their 10th SEC West title.
