Nick Kyrgios skips Wimbledon 2023: "I have a problem"

Very bad news for all the fans a few hours before the official start of Wimbledon 2023, third Slam of the season: Nick Kyrgios, Australian tennis player who was finalist last year, sensationally announced the official withdrawal in the London tournament, one of his favorite tournaments.

Nick has been out due to injury in recent months, underwent surgery at the beginning of the season and tried in every way to be there, but in the end nothing to do. The athlete will be forced to skip Wimbledon, which, immediately loses one of the protagonists to him.

It had already been understood a few weeks ago that Nick was out of condition, the defeat in the first round in Stuttgart against Wu had certified a precarious condition and Nick had withdrawn a few hours before the Halle tournament.

Now, the exact same thing, and Nick couldn't recover in time. The strong tennis player had physical problems and is not so ready for the third Grand Slam of the year, his return has been postponed to a later date and a few hours before his debut Nick explained the situation by announcing his retirement on social media.

Here are his specific words: "Hi everyone, I'm really sad to inform you that I have to retire from Wimbledon this year. I did my best to be ready after my surgery and to be able to hit the Wimbledon courts again.

On my way back, I experienced some pain in my wrist during my week in Mallorca. As a precaution, I performed a check, which revealed a problem with the wrist ligament. I tried everything to be able to play and I'm disappointed to say I didn't have enough time to make it before Wimbledon.

I will be back and, as always, appreciate the support from all my fans." Nick was due to make his debut today, he had a first round match against Belgian David Goffin (who will now face a lucky loser) and Nick was on the side of the draw with Novak Djokovic and our own Jannik Sinner, a side that loses one of its main protagonists. All postponed for the return of the Australian champion to the field.
