Thanasi Kokkinakis tumbled out of the Monte Carlo Masters, quite literally!

The Australian tennis player, taking on fellow young gun Karen Khachanov on Russia in the first round, was handed a 5-7 4-6 defeat on Sunday.

And Kokkinakis had a moment to forget during the one-hour and 50-minute encounter.

In an attempt to hit a backhand from way beyond the baseline, the 22-year-old ran into an advertising board that saw him suffer a nasty fall.

Kokkinakis, though, exacted some revenge by kicking away the board in anger.

He also took to his official Twitter handle to show some disappointment. “Gotta move those,” he wrote, re-tweeting a video of the tumble.

Meanwhile, Khachanov will square-off against a Frenchman, either Gilles Simon or Adrian Mannarino.
