Sleeveless source of Kokkinakis woes


If you didn’t think the male tennis players had a little vanity, here’s a story.

“The back end of 2015 I started lifting weights. I heard Nike were bringing out sleeveless tops. So I was like, ‘All right, I’ve got to bulk up a little bit.’ Terrible idea. Never do bench press,” Thanasi Kokkinakis told the 20FOUR website.


“I remember I came back home … and I went to hand my taxi driver a credit card and I couldn’t lift my arm above here. I had a couple of cortisones. I was like, ‘No, I’m screwed’.”
