Kokkinakis reaches ATP Challenger final in Romania
Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis is finding form in Europe, progressing to his second ATP Challenger final of the season.
Thanasi Kokkinakis has advanced to the final at an ATP Challenger in Sibiu.
The 25-year-old Australian lost only four points on serve during a dominant 6-2 6-1 semifinal win against Switzerland’s Marc-Andrea Huesler at the clay-court tournament.
The 57-minute victory sets up a final showdown with top-seeded Italian Stefano Travaglia. It will be Kokkinakis’ first career meeting with the world No.97.
This is world No.194 Kokkinakis’ second ATP Challenger final appearance this season, having also won a clay-court event in Italy in May.
The former world No.69 has won 11 of his past 14 matches and is yet to drop a set this week.
