First ATP match, first win for the most talented American since Sampras and Agassi. Future Grand Slam winner for sure, I'll keep saying it.
Fritz or Norrie next.

I agree with @enlightenedth 99% of the time. The only exception is when he's talking about Nakashima, who is a mug imo. I mean not the ubermug, but not Sampras or Agassi. More like Johnson, Mmoh or Tiafoe. He might win some 250 somewhere and that's it. I watched from 3-3 till 7-6 and had to quit, Vesely was dumb, probably still on hangover after Pune.

Havent't watched a second of his tennis but I am a brandon Nakashima fan because his name makes him sound like a Metal gear solid side character. Being a proffessional tennis player is just his backstory before joining the Diamond dogs

The last US college player to win singles slams was Johnny Mac, so I would be surprised if this kid were to do that. That being said, he could still have a decent career like an Isner or Johnson.

I disagree. I think Nakashima can be better than those guys. He's had less than half a year of real pro-level experience but he looks like he's been playing much longer. Very solid. It's gonna be fun to see how far he can go this year.

Interesting, haven't watched him yet so you would say he has more raw talent than Brian Baker?
Also Frances Tiafoe is very talented and has underachieved so far.

But Tiafoe is never gonna achieve truly great things with his wack as ass forehand technique. Top players know how to pick on it and break his entire game down.
