“I’m really sad to say that I have to withdraw from Wimbledon this year,” Kyrgios wrote in an Instagram story. “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.”
Kyrgios faced Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final of 2022. Djokovic prevailed 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 in four sets. It was Kyrgios’ longest Grand Slam run to date and a milestone for a player more well-known for his outbursts than his on-court performance.
On June 13 at the Stuttgart Open on the grass courts, Kyrgios made his tennis comeback. Before learning of the wrist injury, he had intended to return to the Grand Slam at Wimbledon. He was slated to play David Goffin of Belgium in the opening round on Monday as the No. 30 seed in the competition. As of Sunday night, Goffin’s new first-round opponent was still unknown.
Kyrgios promised to return in his statement.
“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.”
He omitted a prognosis or timeline for his recovery. The US Open, which begins on August 28, would be his next opportunity to compete in a Grand Slam.
