On Sunday, American Brandon Nakashima quietly walked away a champion. The 19-year-old earned his second ATP Challenger title, at the Open Quimper Bretagne Occidentale 2 (say that five times fast). In only 78 minutes, Nakashima defeated Bernabe Zapata.

Nakashima becomes the youngest American (at 19 years and 6 months) to win multiple ATP Challenger Tour titles since Frances Tiafoe in 2016.
"I've been doing a lot of fitness, especially during the offseason," Nakashima said. "That is, to prepare for these exact moments. I'm just happy that it paid off and I was able to play well for all these matches."
