Talented Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis has returned to the ATP Tour with a different racquet than his previous Babolat Aero Pro Drive. Now he’s using a Babolat Pure Strike 16×19 strung up with Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 17.
Kokkinakis is a talented player who was pretty all of last year due to injuries (shoulder, pectoral and groin injuries). Let’s see what results he can produce in 2017. This is how he commented on the challenges for this year:
“Health, that’s literally it,” he said. “I know my level and know I can get back up there pretty quick but you can’t do that if you’re not on the court.”
“It’s only up from here.”
I think he’s right about that.
