Summer Update On The Courts

The collegiate tennis season ended about a month ago with the Ole Miss men's tennis All-American duo of Jonas Lutjen and Nik Scholtz reaching the NCAA Final Four in doubles. After a few days in Oxford, the two headed to opposite parts of the world, Lutjen to begin his pro career, and Scholtz to play in some Futures tournaments, as collegiate players often do in the summer months. The results so far indicate why they became one of the top doubles tandems in the nation.

Vorster_Scholtz_Turkey.jpgScholtz, who will be a junior next season, traveled to Turkey for Futures events, and teamed up with Rebel alum Tucker Vorster, also an outstanding doubles player, to capture two titles in three weeks.  Their most recent title came Friday in Instanbul, where the South African duo defeated the No. 2 seeded team of Alexander Krasnorutskiy and Anton Manegin from Russia 7-6(1), 6-4.   Scholtz and Vorster also won the doubles in Konya, Turkey.

One of just nine players to earn All-America honors in both singles and doubles, Scholtz also reached the final of the singles in Instanbul, where he lost a close match Saturday to the No. 2 seed.

After joining Scholtz asLutjen_Hanfmann_Mexico.jpg two of only six players to finish the 2013 season top 20 in singles and top 10 in doubles, Lutjen got his pro career off to a good start in Mexico, teaming up with fellow countryman and Southern Cal sophomore Yannick Hanfmann to capture the doubles title a week ago in Quintana Roo.  They beat the No. 1 seed in the semifinals and the No. 2 seed in the final.  The win marked Lutjen's first pro doubles title. 

Following their wins, Lutjen is back in Germany to continue his pro career, while Scholtz heads back to the Motherland for a well-deserved break, before returning to Oxford in the fall.

    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.
