Kokkinakis was close to quitting tennis

Kokkinakis was close to quitting tennis

Thanasi Kokkinakis admitted he was closing to quitting tennis because of all the injuries he was suffering.

Thank God he didn't because as a wild card he produced his biggest win at the Queen's main draw by beating Milos Raonic 7-6 7-6.

Kokkinakis, who was out of the ATP tour for 18 weeks, saw his ranking plunged to 698.

"I can give you a whole rundown, but it's just absurd," he said. "Obviously the shoulder was the big one. I tore my oblique, I had osteitis pubis, I tore my pec. I had an elbow issue, and I'm still dealing with my groin and shoulder issues, and my back is stiff.
