Nick Kyrgios suffers injury scare ahead of Wimbledon with Aussie forced out of Mallorca

Nick Kyrgios has been forced to withdraw from the Mallorca Championships with an abdominal injury and could be in doubt for Wimbledon with the tournament less than a week away. The Aussie has been enjoying a successful grass-court season, making back-to-back semi-finals in Stuttgart and Halle, and is now hoping to be ready for another appearance at the All England Club.

Kyrgios had previously set his sights on winning Wimbledon in a previous Instagram Q&A, and has been working towards his goal with a successful run on the grass. The world No 45 made the semi-finals in both Stuttgart and Halle over the last two weeks, having defeated second seed Tsitsipas at the latter tournament.

The 27-year-old has now been forced out of the Mallorca Championships, where he was set to play Roberto Bautista Agut in the round-of-16 on Wednesday evening. “I’m really sorry I’m going to have to withdraw from tonight’s match here in Mallorca,” the Australian said in a statement.

“I have been playing a lot of great matches lately and unfortunately I woke up with a pain in my abs. I went to see the tournament doctor right away and he advised that I don’t play tonight. I really value the Mallorca Championships but I will follow his advice as I don’t want to risk Wimbledon next week.”
