BERGAMO, October 14, 2021

#NextGenATP players will lead the charge at the 15th edition of the Trofeo Faip-Perrel to be held at the Palazzettodello Sport di Bergamo from 31 October to 7 November. World No. 83 Brandon Nakashima is the highest-ranked player in the entry list of the €44,820 ATP Challenger Tour tournament.

The 20-year-old US-American will bid for his third career title following his triumphs on home soil in Orlando last year and in Quimper, France in early February.

Nakashima will be joined by Danish teen sensation Holger Rune, who already clinched one trophy on the ITF World Tennis Tour as well as three Challenger titles this season. The 18-year-old qualified for his first Grand Slam main draw at the US Open and is currently ranked on a career-high World No. 124.

The rising stars will meet some of the veterans of the circuit, as Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania, Austrian Dennis Novak and Radu Albot of Moldova round out the Top-five entries in Northern Italy.
