One question for me is

Has Brandon Nakashima started practicing at UVA yet? Spring semester classes don't start until January 14, so he probably is not around yet, but he will be eligible to play vs W&M on 1/17. I would think BN will be in our top 6 for sure, but he may not play vs. a weak W&M team. Based on BN's junior tennis accomplishments and being ranked the #4 junior in the world, I think he will play anywhere from 2 thru 4 starting at the NTI opening weekend qualifier at TAMU and once the ACC season gets rolling.

I am predicting/guessing that BN will eventually play #2 only behind Soderlund. My guess is that Pedroso will eventually play CS @1, BN @2, [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], and ML @6, but RG will play some and maybe a lot, most likely at 5 and 6. Even if my order is wrong, we are going to have a much better team than last year. Depending on just how good BN is, but assuming that he is good enough to play in our top 3 this team is truly loaded and IMO talent wise it will be as good as or almost as good as our last National championship team in 2017. Our depth from 3 through 7 will provide adequate backups for any injuries that we may have.
