Nick Kyrgios in doubt for Wimbledon 2023 after Halle Open withdrawal

·

Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn from this week’s grass-court event at Halle due to a knee injury, raising doubts over his fitness to compete at the 2023 Wimbledon tournament.

According to the ATP, Kyrgios withdrew from the event due to his long-standing knee injury but the 28-year-old remained upbeat.

“Very unfortunate news. I won’t be able to compete at Halle this year. I’m still dealing with a couple of things with my knee. Just trying to give myself the best opportunity to compete at Wimbledon,” Kyrgios said in a press release and video issued by the Halle organisers.

This withdrawal comes after Kyrgios made his return to the tennis court at last week’s ATP 250 grass-court event in Stuttgart, Germany.

The world No.31 went down 7-5, 6-3 in his opening match to 64th-ranked rival Wu Yibing of China, and complained of knee soreness mid-match after undergoing surgery during this year’s Australian Open.

Kyrgios managed to finish the match, but decided not to take part in the Halle tournament, where he was supposed to play Italy’s Lorenzo Sonego.
