Whoa...did you guys see what Nakashima did in DC today ? That's impressive.

Also, have to admit I had no idea who Svajda is, looks like he's 18 and ranked in the 700's and lost to Kypson recently, is he a legit prospect ?

Don't know a ton about him, but he got to play in the men's draw at the '19 USO when he was 16. Took two sets before being beaten in five.

He's on the diminutive side. Schwartzman territory, I believe. Nice strokes but I think that will hold him back. It's really not fair is it?

1. Korda
2. Nakashima
3. Brooksby
4. Fritz
5. Opelka

I'm not totally sold on Brooksby but if he played Fritz right now I'd put my money on Brooksby.

Nice prediction.... Just saw Brooksby beat Fritz last night at the US OPen.

Korda is the real deal though. Kid has a huge upside. Too bad he had food poisoning for his US Open match.

I was kind of disappointed Nakashima beat Isner then turned around and lost to some guy ranked 130...I feel like Opelka is always going to be around on the hard courts and the grass, that serve is going to win him a lot of matches, he might have the most consistent career out of all these guys.

The back problems though. I have no idea how these super tall dudes can hold up over time, other than the fact that their serves are usually quick points.
