Ole Miss Rebels Official Athletic Site

In our second installment of Rebel Alums: Where are They Now, we take a look at the All-American twin duo of Marcel Thiemann and Chris Thiemann.

In 2012, Marcel Thiemann became the fourth player in Ole Miss men's tennis history to earn All-America honors three times. Thiemann also became the third player to earn All-SEC first team honors three years. He helped lead the Rebels to their 19th consecutive NCAA appearance and the program's 16th Sweet Sixteen showing.  He ended his career ranked No. 22 in singles and No. 11 in doubles, with his brother Chris Thiemann. The duo made the finals of the 2011 ITA National Indoor, won the 2012 SEC Indoor Championship, and capped a great career reaching the NCAA Final Four in doubles.   

A three-time ITA Scholar-Athlete and Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete of the Year finalist, Marcel graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2012 with a degree in Managerial Finance. He earned an MBA in 2013 followed by a Masters in Accountancy. 

He lives in New York City where he works as an Assurance Senior Associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

Chris Thiemann became the 27th All-American in the history of the program in 2012, teaming with his brother, Marcel Thiemann, to advance to the NCAA Final Four in doubles. He ended the year ranked No. 11 nationally in doubles and helped lead the Rebels to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen for the 16th time. 

Off the court, Chris was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll three times, an ITA Scholar-Athlete twice and a member of the University Honor Roll every semester. He graduated from the University of Mississippi in May of 2012 with a degree in Managerial Finance and earned his MBA in 2013.
