Andy Murray vs Thanasi Kokkinakis live stream
Federer may be retired and Nadal stumbles off into the Melbourne sunset, but Murray, along with Novak Djokovic, mocks the idea that the baton has been passed in elite men’s tennis. Fully equipped with his metal hip, he beat one of the new generation, Matteo Berrettini no less, on Tuesday in five remarkable sets.
Thanasi Kokkinakis (also 26) may not have a seed to his name, but the Aussie will certainly have a decent amount of support of his own. After a mediocre singles career, his star rose 12 months ago at Melbourne Park when he and Nick Kyrgios won the men’s doubles tournament. And he easily faced Fabio Fognini this time in the first round, dropping just five games in a straight line.
