Thanasi Kokkinakis wins wildcard to Wimbledon prelude

THANASI Kokkinakis’s comeback continues to gain impetus after he was given a wildcard into next week’s Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club.

Kokkinakis, who this week won his first ATP World Tour match since August 2015, was promoted into the field with the withdrawal of US Open winner Juan Martin del Potro and Dan Evans.

Kokkinakis posted his first main draw victory since downing Alexandr Dolgopolov in August, 2015 in Winston-Salem with a 6-4 7-5 triumph over Russian Mikhail Youzhny in Holland on Tuesday.

Shoulder surgery, pectoral and abdominal injuries have sidelined Kokkinakis since he climbed to a career-high ranking of No 69.
