Kokkinakis vs Wawrinka live stream preview
One of the ugliest feuds in tennis comes to a head when Thanasi Kokkinakis takes on Stan Wawrinka in the second round of the 2023 French Open. It’s a showdown that has been in the making for nearly eight years and involves so much more than tennis.
During a match in 2015, Wawrinka was rudely taunted by Kokkinakis’ best friend Nick Kyrgios. What was said will not be repeated here, but it alluded to Wawrinka’s girlfriend at the time and Kokkinakis. The Swiss reportedly went into the dressing room for Kyrgios after the game and have since played each other several times.
However, Wawrinka and Kokkinakis have never met on the track. While it’s not clear if they ever cleared the air, it’s unlikely that the relationship between the two men has ever been anything better than cool. As unfair as it may seem, the surest way for Wawrinka to close this grim chapter is to beat the Aussie on Court Simonne-Mathieu.
However, Kokkinakis, a wildcard at Roland Garros this year, is an expert liquidation trader who likes to cross the line and get under the skin of his opponents. The hugely serving 27-year-old may only rank number 107, but on his day he can mingle with the very best.
Wawrinka, now 38 years old and possibly for the last time at this tournament, is one of only two past champions in the men’s event. Given the context of this clash, the fan favorite is likely to have the majority of the crowd behind him, which is a good thing, as he played a 4 hour 35 minute epic against Albert Ramos Vinolas on Monday.
