Nicolaas recently represented South Africa in their Davis Cup play-off against Canada for a spot in the much esteemed World Group. He faced world number fifteen, Milos Raonic, in his first and only match. Considering his own ranking (which is outside of the top 500) and that of Raonic (15th), he more than held his own, though ultimately losing 5-7, 4-6, 5-7. South Africa lost the tie 3-1.
After spending his childhood in Greyton, a small town in the Boland, Western Cape, Nicolaas' family moved to Caledon and he attended Paarl Boys High School. He is currently studying at the University of Mississippi in the United States.
