Nick Kyrgios withdraws from 2023 Wimbledon tournament

Nick Kyrgios Pulls From Wimbledon After Saying Only He Can Beat Djokovic

A month ago, Nick Kyrgios talking a big game ahead of Wimbledon after being runner-up to No. 1 Novak Djokovic in last year's tournament. The Australian, who withdrew from the recent French and Australian Open, was confident that he could dethrone the champion this time, saying to media "if it's not me, it's no one." 

A day before his first round meeting with Belgium's David Goffin, Kyrgios, who was seeded 30th at the All England Club, took to his social media to announce he won't make an appearance on the legendary grass due to a wrist injury. 

So, if your money was looming around Kyrgios' confidence then put it to good use somewhere else. The ego was unwarranted considering the world No. 33 has barely played since October 2022 and in his recent comeback in Stuttgart, Kyrgios was embarrassed by China's Yibing Wu in under 70 minutes (5-7, 3-6).

Some are sympathetic to the Aussie's unlucky string of injuries while other's find his withdrawal on the eve of Wimbledon unprofessional.
