The former Wimbledon doubles boy's champion is now the best player in the Southeast Asian region, leaving the nearest player Kasidit Samrej of Thailand, far behind at No 609.

Nam is currently playing at the Challenger Bangkok Open 1 in Nonthaburi province, about 16km from Bangkok. On August 23, he defeated Australian Dayne Kelly 6-4, 7-6 (4) in the first round after two hours and five minutes.

Nam will next face off against No 8 seed Illya Marchenko of Ukraine, who notably made it to world No 49 in 2016.

Marchenko is world No 308, taller and heavier but nine years older than Nam.

Nam will remain in Thailand for the Nonthaburi 2 event at the same place from August 29 to September 4.
