Brandon Nakashima has switched to Yonex racquets. He was previously playing with the Babolat Pure Strike racquet.. Since the switch, he has struggled on the court. It’s not clear if it’s related to the racquet change.
He ended 2022 on a high by winning the Next Gen ATP Finals. He also won the 2022 San Diego title but his 2023 results so far have been underwhelming.
Nakashima briefly played college tennis at the University of Virginia before deciding to turn pro. His best grand slam result came at Wimbledon in 2022 where he reached the fourth round.
