Tennis Adds Baylor Transfer from Sweden


Recommended Posts

DENTON – UNT Tennis on Monday has signed Baylor transfer Olivia Malm, a native of Orebro, Sweden. She will join the Mean Green as a sophomore.
 
"Olivia brings tremendous experience having represented Sweden in the European Youth Olympics and having played for a Big 12 program for one year," said UNT tennis health program coordinator Rodrigo de Almeida. "When she came to campus for an official visit it was truly special. We believe her values and character are representative of our team's culture and cannot wait to see Olivia reach her full potential here at UNT while helping us achieve our team goals."
 
Malm won the Swedish Championship in both doubles and singles for girls 18 and under in January of 2020. She also represented Sweden in the European Youth Olympics and won the first round in 2017. 
 
Malm won eight singles matches and four doubles matches for the top 30 Baylor Bears who reached the second round of the NCAA tournament.
 
"I chose UNT because I feel it is a great place to improve on and off the court," said Malm. "The coaches and staffs are very supportive and positive, and I can't wait to be surrounded by great people in a great environment."
 
Malm has held an ITF Juniors ranking as high as 598 and singles ranking as high as 1025. She has been a semifinalist or runner-up at several ITF tournaments from 2018 through 2020. The transfer was a runner-up in the Swedish Championship for doubles from 2018 through 2020.

would have been a better pick-up if she actually had played in the line-up of one of Baylor's weakest teams in a few years. 

Probably a #3/4 player, which will not get the team into the Top 6 of Conference or compete well once they join the AAC

Yes, but than she would more likely never transfers, and even more unlikely to NT.

well the transfer split sets with the current #5, who was beaten quite abit this season, does not bode well. Also this girls UTR puts her around #3 of current players, so yes she may have stayed but there is always a reason players transfer and generally it is not because they were overly successful at a school with everything.
