Nick Kyrgios withdraws from Wimbledon the night before he was scheduled to take on the court on the opening day of the tournament. The Australian was set to take on David Goffin in the first round but had to make this decision due to a wrist injury.

What Led to Kyrgios’ Withdrawal

Kyrgios practiced on Sunday morning and told reporters that he is fit to play. However, later that they he took to Instagram to announce his withdrawal.

“I’m really sad to say that I have to withdraw from Wimbledon this year,” he wrote. “I tried my hardest to be ready after my surgery and to be able to step on the Wimbledon courts again. 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 — I’ll be back.”

Kyrgios 2023 Season

Kyrgios missed the first half of the year and came back to action at the tournament in Stuttgart. He lost in the opening round to Yibing Wu and it was obvious that he is not on the necessary level.

However, tennis fans were excited to see Kyrgios back at Wimbledon after he made it to the final last year, losing to Novak Djokovic.

It is uncertain when Kyrgios will be back in action. He will definitely take a couple of weeks off and will target the return somewhere before the US Open.
