Nick Kyrgios withdraws from United Cup, misses out on Nadal clash

Nick Kyrgios has sensationally withdrawn from the United Cup only 24 hours before his opening match, which was to be the first time he’s played in Australia since the Wimbledon final.

Kyrgios, who only arrived in the country earlier this week after spending Christmas abroad, cited a need to recover from several injuries as the reason for missing the $22 million mixed gender event in Sydney.

Tournament officials announced Kyrgios’ withdrawal moments before Australia’s team members were due to front a press conference.

He was due to play Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie and Spain’s Rafael Nadal in his two round robin singles matches.
