OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss men’s tennis team bolstered its future with the signing of one of the world’s top junior players in Sweden’s Stefan Lindmark, head coach Billy Chadwick announced Thursday.  Lindmark will join the program in the fall of 2012.

A native of Stockholm, Lindmark is the top-ranked junior in Sweden and has been ranked as high as No. 40 in the ITF Junior World Rankings.   Lindmark continues the Rebels’ tradition of signing the top players from Sweden.

“Stefan joins a rich history of great players from Sweden joining the program here at Ole Miss,” Chadwick said.  “He has experience on a world-wide level and is the type of player that will make an impact in the SEC.”

A lefty, Lindmark reached the round of 16 at the European Championships this past summer. He has played in the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon.  In addition, Lindmark has reached the finals and semifinals of several Grade A ITF tournaments in doubles.

Assistant coach Toby Hansson was instrumental in recruiting Lindmark.  “His results are impressive.  He’s a solid all-around player, who’s going to be a great one for the Rebels.”
