Kyrgios Withdraws From Washington, D.C.

Australian made his debut in the capital of the United States in 2017

Nick Kyrgios withdrew from the Citi Open on Wednesday due to a hip injury ahead of his second-round meeting against fellow Australian James Duckworth.

“It’s the same left hip injury I got after a sudden movement in Atlanta last week and I haven’t had enough time to be ready to play this week,” Kyrgios said. “The physio recommended a couple of days of rest, rehab and treatment. I’ve got ample time for it to settle down before [the Rogers Cup in] Toronto.

“It’s disappointing. I’m sure I’ll be here again with another chance to play, but at this stage I can’t risk aggravating the injury with [ATP World Tour] Masters 1000s and the US Open coming up. Last year I wasn’t healthy at the US Open, so I want to be right for that.”

Kyrgios, who has a 19-8 record on the season, highlighted by a fourth ATP World Tour title at the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp (d. Harrison) in January, has been replaced by Australian lucky loser Jason Kubler in the Washington, D.C. draw.
