STARKVILLE – The No. 10 Ole Miss men’s tennis team won the doubles point on Friday, but lost five of the first six sets in singles against No. 13 Mississippi State.
Then, a rain delay of more than three hours changed the momentum
entirely, as the Rebels (13-5, 6-3 SEC) won 4-2.
William Kallberg gave Ole Miss the lead with his come-from-behind, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 victory over Jordan Angus at No. 3 singles, then Rebels’ Jonas Lutjen finished off a 1-6, 7-6(4), 6-2 victory against Malte Stropp to clinch the win over MSU (13-7, 3-5 SEC).
“A great comeback,” coach Billy Chadwick said. “This was a great Mississippi State team, and it’s extremely difficult to beat them in Starkville.”
WOMEN’S MATCH: The Ole Miss women’s team scored their 24th victory in a row in their series with MSU, winning 4-1 in Oxford.
