Nick Kyrgios Forced To Withdraw From 2023 Mallorca Championships

Nick Kyrgios Forced To Withdraw From 2023 Mallorca Championships

by Zachary Wimer

Nick Kyrgios won't be competing at the 2023 Mallorca Championships after he withdrew from the tournament.

Things are not looking good for the 28-year-old Australian at the moment. He traveled to Europe to compete on the ATP Tour again after missing all of the 2023 action due to a knee surgery and subsequent recovery.

However, in his first match back, it was obvious that Kyrgios was far from his best, losing to Yibing Wu at the 2023 Stuttgart Open. During the match, he even told his team that he can't walk without pain in his knee, and also asked his fans for patience after the loss.

A few days later, the Australian withdrew from the 2023 Halle Open, and despite making his way to Spain and practicing in Mallorca, he withdrew from the tournament before the draw was made, attempting to recover even further for Wimbledon.

Kyrgios, who reached the Wimbledon finals last year, now faces uncertainty about his fitness as he enters the 2023 Wimbledon. However, he should enter the tournament as a seeded player, giving him enough time to spring through the first two matches before facing one of the fellow seeds.

With only one match played this season, the third Grand Slam of the season may be really challenging for the Australian. The Australian also signed up for the doubles tournament with his good friend Thanasi Kokkinakis, but that plan may come to an end if he doesn't recover in time.

For now, Kyrgios will need to hope for a miracle to prepare well for the 2023 Wimbledon. Being seeded certainly gives him an advantage that he needs, but if he should play on one leg, it may be impossible for the 2022 finalist to go far at the event that he likes so much. Only time will tell if he makes it on time.
