Australian no. 1 singles player Nick Kyrgios has undergone knee surgery that has forced him to withdraw from the 2023 Australian Open.

The 27-year-old Kyrgios had been preparing for the Australian Open, which was set to begin on January 16th, 2023. However, after still experiencing pain in his knee during training, he decided to seek medical attention and ultimately underwent the surgery. The surgery, an arthroscopic procedure, was performed to clean up Kyrgios's lateral meniscus and remove a paralabral cyst.

The procedure was a success and Kyrgios is expected to make a full recovery, but it is unclear at this time when he will be able to return to the tour. The recovery time for this type of surgery can vary greatly depending on the individual case, but it typically ranges from several weeks to several months.

Previously, the Australian stated that he doesn't plan to play until the Indian Wells, and so he'll have around two months to recover and come fully prepared to the United States.

Kyrgios has yet to make a statement about when he expects to return to the tour, but his fans and the tennis community will be eagerly watching for updates on his recovery.

"Surgery complete. I’ll be doing everything I can do get back to my best. to the real ones checking in and sending the vibes…. I love you."
