Nick Kyrgios Exits US Open To Miss Fourth Straight Grand Slam

This year has been pretty rocky for Nick Kyrgios, and his struggles are far from over. After missing four Grand Slams in a row due to injuries, the Australian tennis star announced he won’t be competing at the US Open this summer. Kyrgios’ withdrawal was announced by the US Open officials on social media. They confirmed he won’t be back by tweeting, “Nick Kyrgios, a 2022 quarterfinalist, is out of this year’s US Open. Hope to see you back on the court soon, Nick.” Kyrgios’ withdrawal isn’t a huge shocker given his track record throughout 2023. He kicked the year off by withdrawing from the Australian Open with a knee injury, revealing that he’ll have to undergo surgery due to a cyst caused by a tear in his lateral meniscus. Kyrgios also missed Wimbledon with a wrist injury, shortly after being eliminated in the first round of the Stuttgart Open in June. “During my comeback, I experienced some pain in my wrist during the week of Mallorca… I tried everything to be able to play and I am disappointed to say that I just didn’t have enough time to manage it before Wimbledon,” said Kyrgios following his withdrawal. The US Open will take place between August 28 and September 10 in New York, and Carlos Alcaraz is entering the tournament as the defending champion.
