Rebs on Tour Update: 11.27
Nov. 27, 2017

Stay up to date at with former players who are currently playing professional tennis around the world. This week's update features another singles title for Nik Scholtz

Playing back in his home country of South Africa, Ole Miss men’s tennis alum Nik Scholtz won the singles title at the Digicall Futures in Stellenbosch Sunday.

High Five in 2017…
Scholtz beat Frenchman Leny Mitjana in the final for his fifth title of the year and 12th overall. The top-seeded Scholtz needed only two sets to win 6-4, 6-4 against the No. 4 seed and did not drop a set in five matches. In the quarterfinals, Scholtz beat former Kentucky All-American Tom Jomby in straight sets.

“I had a really good week, Scholtz said. “I think it’s the first time I’ve ever I won a tournament without dropping a set. That is a big positive to take from the week. It was tough with the wind. It is the guy who makes the least amount of errors and keeps his focus that wins in conditions like this. To win a tournament you also can’t afford to have a bad day, things need to go your way every day. I’m not going to celebrate yet. I want to do good in all three of the tournaments.”

Next up…
Scholtz is the top seed again this week in Stellenbosch and will face qualifier Ryan Nijboer of the Netherlands in the first round Wednesday. He’s also in the doubles with fellow South African Joshua Luck and the two will face South Africans Charl Morgan and Tucker Vorster, also a Rebel alum, in the first round Tuesday.

Vorster, is also in the singles field after earning a wildcard. He faces Milen Ianakiev of Germany in the first round Tuesday.
