Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

Absolutely! Was just annoyed with Tomic's face during the match. WHAT a great run, especially after losing all those first rounds in the US after qualifying in three (?) straight tournaments. And...

Re: Indian Wells 4R: Tomic def. Kokkinakis 6-4 4-6 6-4

Do people like Tomic just to be "ironic"? Ugh. I so wanted that final set TB.

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

Essh, do not like Tomic, completely unlikable and devoid of charisma. Got a bad feeling about the match after TK wasted all those break chances.

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

I'm hoping that the match vs. Tomic won't be quite so physically tiring in that Tomic generally plays short(-ish) points, at least more so than Monaco. We'll see. It could mean a quick loss too. I...

Re: Indian Wells R3: (WC) Kokkinakis def. Monaco, 6-2 5-7 7-6(5)

Didn't he just favorite a tweet that accused Djokovic of acting? That's pretty minor. I like Djokovic, but Thanasi is Andy's buddy and has been for some time, so obviously he's going to root for...

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

I totally agree with you on all counts. It's so wonderful to see some exuberance, personality, and, well, balls from the younger generation. (I'm lookin' at you Dimitrov.) I just want to cheer for...

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

I see. I actually like Djokovic so I loved the celebration. Him falling to the ground was very reminiscent of that AO Gulbis victory too. I just pray that the media and PR training doesn't get to...

Re: Indian Wells R3: (WC) Kokkinakis def. Monaco, 6-2 5-7 7-6(5)

Right, I couldn't really read his lips after the match but he seemed reluctant to sign the three tennis balls and do the interview, which is incredibly out of character for him. I'm just so happy to...

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

So happy for Kokk. Monaco fans (didn't know they existed)/anti-Kokkers upset that he took MTO. I'm biased, but it looked genuine. I guess you could argue that he should have just played through it...

Re: Indian Wells R3: (WC) Kokkinakis def. Monaco, 6-2 5-7 7-6(5)

I guess his obvious fatigue after the match was just more of his "faking," right? He probably isn't quite ATP level match fit and has played two long matches in a couple of days. How anyone can...

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

Nothing wrong with a little hopeful optimism, I think. Sometimes players just break out - think Janowicz (not that what's followed has been exactly all that inspiring) making the final at Paris 2012.

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

Beside the point, but sadly, it wasn't a back court - I think the main court only drew about 10 people. I didn't see much of the match, but they announced his name in an incredibly loud and...

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

I basically agree, Kate, it's just frustrating to keep waiting for him to string together a few ATP tour wins. :( I'm also wondering if the problem is more with sustaining intensity than a physical...

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

What a bad loss, couldn't even take it to 3 sets. I said something similar after a bad loss in 2014: these are guys he needs to be beating; he hasn't done a whole lot to convince me that he's...

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

Rock on Kokk. As for title watch, I think there are a couple too many threats in the draw: Isner, Kei, Tomic, Karlovic, Anderson, Groth - obviously he would not face every one of these guys, but I...

Re: Djokovic's on-court behaviour

I feel like it would just make me more focused, like "here's the chance to finally beat this guy for good." :lol: I don't know. Obviously it distracted Murray to some extent but this is a guy who...

Re: Djokovic's on-court behaviour

Genuine question for those who play tennis (not me): Why would a player expend his energy pretending to be tired when he isn't in the hopes of tricking his opponent when he could just put his energy...

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

Got it. I've been saying the first and last syllables wrong, but I think he may pronounce his own name "incorrectly." At least I wasn't entirely butchering it like Pascal Maria in the R1 match....

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

What is the correct way to say it? I think he should be beating players like Groth at this point too, but I'm hoping the fatigue from the Gulbis match was a big part of the loss.

Re: Kyrgios is the real deal.

Fair enough and thanks for your response. What do you think about Kokkinakis, who's had the same type of accusations although not to the same extent?

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

Sad to see him go down to a servebot (yes I know Groth has improved etc.) like that. Did Groth look strong and menacing out there or what? Hope TK can make some inroads at Memphis and Delray Beach.

Re: Kyrgios is the real deal.

How is Kyrgios arrogant? I'm not trolling; I honestly don't get it. I'm indifferent to him but don't understand the contempt. He has an awful haircut, yes, but I don't see how he's particularly...

Re: Here comes Nole again! Beijing cheering thread! Final vs Berdych

I chalk a lot of his amazing level of play up to his incredible support in China. It's like he has an army behind him. I think they helped him to come back against Andy in Shanghai 2012 as well.

Re: Thanasi Kokkinakis

Was hoping he'd have a bit more of a breakthrough. Yeah, Giraldo is decently ranked at 30, but I feel like the first step to success usually comes when guys like Kokk take down someone right around...
