Max Stewart, a native of Birmingham, England, joined the Sooners in January.
Prior to his arrival at OU, Stewart held a career-high ITF ranking of 68 and was the former No. 2 junior player in Great Britain. From 2016 to the end of his junior career, Stewart advanced to the semifinals or better in either singles or doubles at 10 different ITF tournaments.
The freshman brought that valuable experience to Norman, where he has been the Sooners’ anchor at the No. 6 spot in singles and has compiled a 4-2 record. All but one of Stewart’s wins have come in straight sets, with his lone three-setter the victory that clinched OU's win over Arkansas on Jan. 14.
Meet the freshman who’s already making waves for the Sooners.
