Bordeaux CH Final: [Q] Kokkinakis def. de Bakker 6-4 1-6 7-6(5)

He finally has his 1st decent title, so happy for him, now he will be able to get more out of his game in ATP events because qualys will be bypassed, it almost did not happen though de Bakker put up a good challenge, good week for both.:)

Thiemo saved 5MPs on his serve, three from 0*-40. Nice match and good hitting, Kokkinakis had to play many volleys and always had the right answers. He seems slightly improved on retun although he only capitalised on his only BP he had in the entire match.

Good win for Thanasi and his confidence on clay. Zverev just won as well but too bad Chung couldn't get a win for the young gen trifecta :wavey:

De Bakker was probably the better player on average, but Kokk was far more clutch. He will remember this win for the rest of his life. Congrats.

Agreed.

Feel for Thiemo, he was heroic towards the end in saving all those MPs.

Good solid week's work for Thanasi.

Top 50 is definitely achievable by year's end.

If continues at his current rate he'll likely be top 50 by the end of the grass season, if not sooner.

He is at 47 in the race and has no points at all to defend for the grass season (and only small chunks of points after that).

Seriously, calm down the drool, he hasn't won an ATP match since IW, so the chances of him making the top 50 that soon are slim.

Good grief, you never give up!

In fact he earned 35 points at Madrid, and just captured another 115.

He has consistently been earning ranking points at around 3-4 times the rate he did last year through his tour qualifying and main draw efforts.

And the grass season is coming up. He's an Australian (and former Wimbledon junior doubles champ). Connect the dots.

Neither do you.

He's been "consistently" earning barely any points from weak qualy draws, he was earning more and doing the same in challengers last season.

Last year he tried to qualify for the Nottingham grass challenger and could not, connect the dots.
