Ole Miss Men’s Tennis Duo Posts Top 20 Win over TCU

While most of us woke up to frigid temperatures in Mississippi, the Ole Miss men’s tennis team kicked off the 2015 season Thursday in a much warmer climate at the Florida Gulf Coast University Invitational.

The Rebels played doubles against TCU and Rice, and Stefan Lindmark and Ricardo Jorge highlighted the day with a win over No. 20 ranked Nick Chappell and Will Stein of TCU in Flight 1. Several new rules have been adopted for this season, including no-ad scoring and doubles to six with a tiebreaker at 6-6. The two teams played to a tiebreaker, with Lindmark and Jorge winning it 7-6(4).

Teammates William Kallberg and Gustav Hansson also won a tight match in Flight 1, defeating Adam Gustafsson and Gustavo Gonzalez of Rice 7-6(6).

The Rebels continued play Friday with singles against Rice, followed by doubles against the Owls and FGCU.
