#NextGenATP American Brandon Nakashima earned his first tour-level win on Monday evening in Los Cabos, where he defeated countryman J.J. Wolf to reach the second round of the Mifel Open.

We caught up with Nakashima about his music playlist, what he has learned from Novak Djokovic, what he would want to do with Roger Federer and more.

Who do you text the most?
The person I text with the most would probably be my younger brother Bryce, especially when I’m travelling a lot and not at home, just to keep in touch with him every day.

What is currently on your music playlist?
I listen to a little bit of everything. I’d probably say right now, a little bit more of the pop, maybe the top hits going on.

What other sport do you enjoy?
My favourite other sport to watch would probably be baseball, whether it’s going to the games or watching on TV. I always like to watch it during my free time.

What have you learned from spending time with Novak Djokovic, who you have trained?
The biggest thing I’ve learned from practising from Novak Djokovic would probably be just the way he goes about everything. It’s how he’s super-focused, pays attention to all the little details both on the court when he’s practising and during the matches as well.

What is the last thing you watched on Netflix?
The last thing I watched on Netflix would probably be the Formula 1 documentary [Drive To Survive]. It was such a good show and got me really into it right now.

What is your favourite account to follow on Instagram?
One of my favourite teams that I like to follow on Instagram would probably be the San Diego Padres. It’s a baseball team located in my hometown, so I always like to follow their results and their games.

What’s your most-used emoji?
The laughing and crying emoji!

Who would your dream doubles partner be?
My dream doubles partner would probably be Roger Federer, just because he’s a legend of the sport and it would be a real honour to play with him.

Which country would you like to visit and why?
Probably one of the top countries I would like to visit that I haven’t been to before is Australia. I’ve never been there before, and I’ve always heard great things about it.

What is your favourite cheat meal?
My favourite cheat meal would probably be a good In-N-Out Burger from Southern California.
