Thanasi Kokkinakis surpassed his previous best from back in June 2015

In 2018, Kokkinakis won two additional Challenger titles and ended the year having re-entered the top 150. However, over the next two years, further injuries prevented him from regularly competing on the professional circuit, but he made his return in 2021 and he reached two Challenger finals, of which he won one. He continued his comeback in 2022 and appeared in his first ATP Tour final in five years at the 2022 Adelaide International 2, in which he prevailed in front of a home-town audience to secure his maiden ATP Tour singles title. He then won the Australian Open doubles title partnering Kyrgios, and the pair competed in the year-end championships.

However, he could not compete on the professional circuit for the next two years due to severe injuries, although he returned in 2021.

Thanasi kokkinakis's Net Worth Revealed

Kokkinakis's tennis earnings up to now total 3.3 Million dollars.

However, there is currently no definitive evidence or information regarding his wealth. However, we may safely assume that he has a fortune in the millions and that his professional career is his primary source of income.

Even though his exact profits are unknown, Thanasi has won several titles and been in numerous finals, so we may assume he has amassed a sizable fortune.

In 2022 after winning against Korea's Kwon Soon-woo, Kokkinakis admitted to hitting the court without a sponsor.

When asked about his outfit by reporters, he said: “Mate, Kmart special. I went to Chadstone, bought some $6 tees and went to work. I just felt comfortable in it.”

“I’ve tried to order more online, but they got cancelled; they didn’t make it to South Yarra”.

Tech company, Safety Culture Group, came to the rescue and is his current sponsor.

Kokkinakis was thrilled at the announcement.

“To be backed by an Australian brand who’s helping events like the Open run smoothly is a perfect match,” he wrote on Instagram.
