Tennis “bad boy” Nick Kyrgios (92nd, Australia) has withdrawn from the US Open, the last major tennis tournament of the year, after injuring his wrist.

According to the United States Tennis Association (USTA) on Wednesday, Kyrgios and 25th-ranked Jan-Lennart Struff (Germany), who were both in the main draw for singles, have informed the organization of their intentions to withdraw.

This means Kyrgios will miss all four majors this year.

After reaching his first major singles final at Wimbledon last year and a career-best quarterfinal at the US Open, Kyrgios has been hampered by a string of injuries this season.

After missing the Australian Open in January and undergoing surgery on his left knee, he was forced to withdraw from the French Open in May after injuring his foot during a carjacking.

He then missed Wimbledon in July with a wrist injury that carried over to the US Open.

Kyrgios has only played one ATP Tour match this year, the first round of the Stuttgart Open in June. He lost 0-2 to China’s 91st-ranked Wu Yibing.

Known as the “bad boy of the court” for his frequent protests to umpires and clashes with opponents and even spectators during matches, Kyrgios has been limiting his tournament appearances to maintain his “mental health”.

This year, however, his body hasn’t been cooperating with his mind, and he hasn’t been able to step onto the court.

“I’m heartbroken that I won’t be able to compete at the US Open,” Kyrgios wrote on social media, “My wrist isn’t ready for the competition.” He continued, “But my protection ranking is 21st.

“But my protected ranking is 21st. If I choose to come back, I will be right back where I want to be.”

Along with Kyrgios, Struff’s withdrawal meant that reserve qualifiers Facundo Díaz Acosta (No. 96) and Diego Schwartzman (No. 98-Argentina) punched their tickets to the main draw side by side.

Korean tennis sensation Kwon Soon-woo (105th, Dangjin City Hall) also improved his chances of qualifying, moving from fifth to third on the reserve list.

Kwon, who has been focusing on recovering from a shoulder injury in Korea, will be looking to make her first court appearance since the ExxonMobil Open in Qatar in February.

Kwon is currently in Florida, USA, training for the US Open.

In her fifth appearance at the tournament, Kwon will be looking to reach the third round of singles for the first time.

Kwon’s best singles results at the US Open came in 2020 and last year, 카지노사이트킴 when she reached the second round.

Kwon’s best singles result at a major tournament was reaching the third round at the 2021 French Open.
