PARIS (AP) — The Latest on the French Open (all times local):
Thanassi Kokkinakis came short in his bid to win his first match at a major in two years.
Eighth-seeded Kei Nishikori had to work hard, however, to beat the 21-year-old Australian 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 on Court 1 at the French Open.
Kokkinakis’s promising career has been derailed by a shoulder injury that required surgery in December 2015. He was playing only his third singles match since then.
Nishikori’s next opponent will be Jeremy Chardy.
Laurent Lokoli did not do honor to his wild card at the French Open.
Not only did the Frenchman lose…
