Nick Kyrgios has been forced to withdraw from the upcoming Indian Wells and Miami Open due to a knee injury.

This news has left fans and experts alike speculating about the future of the tennis world without one of its most exciting and unpredictable players. Kyrgios underwent knee surgery in January this year, and while his recovery initially seemed to be going well, it now appears that he has not fully healed in time for the upcoming tournaments.

When talking about the surgery just recently, Kyrgios' agent Daniel Horsfall hinted that the Australian should return in Indian Wells, but it appears that something must have changed changed. Back then, he said:

“The surgery was a great success. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome of it. Now we will be pushing ahead for a speedy recovery and are aiming to see everyone at Indian Wells.”

The news of Kyrgios' withdrawal has come as a blow to tennis fans who have been eagerly anticipating his return to the court and he'll surely be missed at the 2023 BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells and 2023 Miami Open.

However, the Australian isn't the only player struggling with an injury as the event may take place also without the world no. 2, Carlos Alcaraz, who renewed his injury during the recent Rio Open final.

Also former world no. 1, Daniil Medvedev recently spoke about how tennis balls are making players more injury-prone and so it's obvious that the ATP Tour is facing a lot of withdrawals right now.
