Kyrgios withdraws from Australian Open 2023

·

Australian Greek tennis star, Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn from the 2023 Australian Open due to a knee injury.

According to The Guardian, the athlete has a tear in his lateral meniscus and a cyst which is not career threatening but could become problematic should he play in this year’s grand slam.

The announcement, made at Melbourne Park on Monday afternoon was made by Kyrgios and his physiotherapist.

 “It’s just bad timing,” Kyrgios said. “That’s life, you know. Injuries are part of sport … I’m not doubting that I’ll be back to my full strength.”

“Devastated obviously. It’s my home tournament … and going into this event as one of the favourites, it’s brutal,” Nick Kyrgios said.

The world No.19 was meant to play his first-round match against Russian tennis player, Roman Safiullin tomorrow.
