Nick Kyrgios will finally not play the first edition of the United Cup!
He was forced to withdraw 24 hours before the start of the mixed team competition, which runs from December 29, 2022 to January 8, 2023.
The Wimbledon finalist is suffering from an ankle injury, which was sustained at the Diriyah Cup in Saudi Arabia and aggravated at the World Tennis League in Dubai before Christmas.
“His team has advised him to take precautionary measures in the two weeks leading up to the Australian Open to give him the best chance of being fit and healthy,” a source close to Kyrgios told The Age.
The goal is to be ready for the Australian Open, on which he is banking heavily and where he will be highly anticipated.
Alex de Minaur will finally be the number 1 of the Australian team for the United Cup.
