After defeating his close friend and fellow resident of Southern California, Marcos Giron, in the final of the San Diego Open 6-4, 6-4, Brandon Nakashima claimed his maiden win on the ATP Tour in his hometown.
“It’s something you dream of, but to have it happen in my hometown with all of my friends and family here, it’s a moment I’ll never forget,” said Nakashima, who had two previous appearances in the finals. “It’s something you dream of, but to have it happen in my hometown with all of my friends and family here, it’s a moment I’ll never forget.” “I really hope that there will be many more times like this in the future.”
Nakashima, who is now 21 years old and was raised in San Diego and practiced extensively at the event’s venue as a junior, won the first set in under thirty minutes and took the lead in the match. The second set, which was marked by several extended rallies, lasted for almost to an hour.
Giron, the No. 5 seed and a former NCAA champion from UCLA, was unable to defend himself against Nakashima’s relentless ground strokes and well-placed serves. Nakashima won the match in straight sets. Nakashima hit a total of eight aces, with six of them coming in the opening set.
The decisive points in the match were scored by Nakashima after Giron hit an easy volley into the net when Nakashima was serving at 5-4 in the second set. This was followed by an ace from Nakashima on his second serve.
At the beginning of September, he competed in the United States Open and advanced to the third round, which resulted in him receiving $93,090 in prize money.
Nakashima, who was previously rated No. 69 on the ATP Tour, climbed up to the No. 48 spot, which is his best rating in over three years on tour. Despite suffering the defeat, Giron climbed up to the 53rd position from the 58th.
Not only was the singles championship won by an American, but the doubles championship was also won by an American team. The second-seeded pair of Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow upset the Australian tandem of Jason Kubler and Luke Saville 7-6 (5), 6-2 to take home the doubles championship.
The Barnes Tennis Center played home to the $612,00 competition. The facility will afterwards play host to the $757,900 WTA 500 San Diego Open from October 8-16. That will include 16 of the top 20 women professionals in the globe, lead by Iga Swiatek, who is now rated first.
