Ole Miss At America's Major

The final tennis Grand Slam of the year, the U.S. Open, begins today at the USTA Billie Jean King Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y.   For fun, let's take a look at the Rebels' history in America's major.

Twelve-time grand slam champion Mahesh Bhupathi marks his 17th U.S. Open appearance this year.  He be in doubles later this week as well as mixed doubles.   Bhupathi, who became the first NCAA Champion in men's tennis history at Ole Miss when he captured the 1995 title, has won two titles at the U.S. Open.  In 2002, he teamed with Max Mirnyi to win the doubles title and then in 2005, he won the mixed doubles crown with Daniela Hantuchova.  Above, Bhupathi is pictured with '95 partner Ali Hamadeh and Ole Miss head coach Billy Chadwick.  The duo received a wild card into the '95 U.S. Open and advanced to the second round.

In 2009, Mississippi native Devin Britton became the youngest ever NCAA Singles Champion and the first Rebel to win the singles crown.  Just a year removed from reaching the finals of the U.S. Open Junior Championships, Britton received a wildcard into the U.S. Open main draw where he matched up against 17-time grand slam champion Roger Federer, in the first round.  Britton also competed in mixed doubles that year.

Two-time All-American Sebastien DeChaunac competed in the U.S. Open singles main draw in 2001, where he lost to former world No. 1, Marat Safin, in three sets.

Ali Hamadeh teamed up with Mahesh Bhupathi to win the 1995 NCAA Doubles Championship and later that summer the pair took to the big stage of the U.S. Open, where they advanced to the second round.

A fiery Swede who advanced to the NCAA Doubles semifinals in 1995, Johan Landsberg played in four U.S. Opens in doubles, reaching the round of 16 in 2002.


The Rebels' first All-American (1988), Dave Randall reached the quarterfinals in doubles at the 1993 U.S. Open.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.

    Gray pants with red and blue stripes on the legs have served Ole Miss football my entire life time. The blue on blue, red on red and white on white are hideous and UGLY! Leave the pants alone.
