Nick Kyrgios withdraws from Wimbledon

·

Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn from Wimbledon this year after experiencing a torn ligament in his wrist.

Kyrgios made the announcement on Monday morning on his Instagram stories.

“I tried my hardest to be ready after my surgery and to be able to step on the Wimbledon courts again,” Kyrgios said in his post.

“During my comeback, I experienced some pain in my wrist during the week of Mallorca. As a precaution I had it scanned and it came back showing a torn ligament in my wrist. I tried everything to be able to play and I am disappointed to say that I just didn’t have enough time to manage it before Wimbledon.”

Kyrgios made the final of Wimbledon last year, losing to Novak Djokovic in four sets.

The tennis star missed the entire start of the 2023 season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in January. Kyrgios made his return last month in Stuttgart, where he lost to Wu Yibing in the first round.

He said despite this latest hurdle, he will “be back.”

“And as always, I appreciate the support from all my fans.” Kyrgios said.
