Nakashima moves up to #4 in ITF junior boys world rankings (link).

I am certain that we have never had a junior player ranked anywhere near this high and probably no one ever ranked in the world's top 25 (maybe TSK?). I would think that all the other top 10 world juniors are turning pro. It seems very conceivable that he could play #1 or #2 for us immediately with that kind of tennis history.

Mark your tennis watching calendar for Friday Feb 8 when we are scheduled play WF at BHSC at 5 PM. WF has the defending NCAA singles champ (Petros Chrysochos) and Borna Gojo who played #1 ahead of Petros last year. Either would be a great match up for BN. I wish I knew why we scheduled this "exhibition" match against another ACC team. We have never done that before as far as I know.. It definitely is not the official ACC match vs. WF this year. It takes place on March 17 in W/S. This match is listed on the UVA tennis schedule, It is the weekend before the National Team Indoor championships in Chicago which is a bit strange from a timing view point. In any event IMO this match will be THE tennis event in C'ville this year.
