Qualified for his first ATP final since 2017 in Sydney after years of hardship marked by repeated injuries, Thanasi Kokkinakis paid a hell of a tribute to Rafael Nadal before his semi-final won against Marin Cilic.
“Nadal is such a resilient player. What he has been able to do over the years is nothing short of impressive. Staying motivated after everything he’s done, to keep wanting more and wanting to play again, that shows his love of the game. He’s one of the best competitors there is. “
