Kokki gets back a break in the third set to level at 3-3, after winning the first 63, then losing the 2nd set 46.
Now at 5-4 up.

Kokki breaks and wins 64 in the third.
Well done Thanasi

I really thought he was going down there, but final rush to the gate...let's hope he is in better form for the next one!

Thanasi matches it with his peer 19 year-old Jap Yoshihito Nishioka, but ends up on the wrong side of the 3rd set scoreboard, going down 57 64 46. Not the expected result.

One of his fans who was at the match said he called his opponent a f-ing ch*nk, and that blew up all over Twitter (though he denied it).

As for the match, he was up 4-2* in the third but was broken back. He was also up 40-love at 4-all, but didn't win another point in the match.

Alleged fans. Claims he overheard it and so felt the need to tweet. Thanasi has denied and it seems totally out of character. Nick has chipped him on twitter saying he would never say something like that.

Possibly not the best wording n the circumstances!

Nishioka was always giong to be a formidable opponent in my view - the Kokk might have more long term potential, but Nishioka has been steadily rising, has five futures titles to the Kokks 1, and their challenger records aren't that far apart.

I agree (again?) with Kate. Nishioka has been rising up the rankings well, with some solid results and is a player to be watched.
