Nick Kyrgios, the 2022 Wimbledon runner-up, has pulled out of the tournament with a wrist injury, few hours before the start of the grass court grand slam on Monday.
The 28-year-old Australian stated this on his verified page.
He wrote, “I’m really sad to say that I have to withdraw from Wimbledon this year. 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.”
Kyrgios had a surgery on his left knee earlier this year and lost in his comeback match after a five-month layoff against China’s Wu Yibing in the Stuttgart Open first round last month.
He missed the French Open due to a foot injury he sustained during the theft of his car.
Kyrgios also withdrew from event in Halle and Mallorca.
