Spectacular comeback from Thanasi Kokkinakis at the 2021 Australian Open

Greek Australian tennis player Thanasi Kokkinakis made a successful comeback.

Despite skipping the entire 2020 season due to glandular fever that stripped kilos from his frame, he successfully returned to the tennis tour.

Not to mention he has battled a litany of serious injuries over the last few years.

Kokkinakis defeated Korean world number 92 Soonwoo Kwon 6: 4, 6: 1 and 6:1 in the first round of the Australian Open 2021.

Australian Greek tennis legend Mark Philippoussis serves as Kokkinakis' mentor.

The young player was among eight players to receive a main draw singles wildcard at the 2021 Australian Open.

And he did not disappoint. He is now through to the second round.

Don't forget in 2018, Thanasi Kokkinakis defeated Roger Federer.
