- Nick Kyrgios will miss the 2024 Australian Open
- It will be the second time that he will miss action on home soil
- Kyrgios suffered a wrist injury in June and had a knee surgery too
Nick Kyrgios will miss 2024 Australian Open which is the first Grand Slam in the ATP Tour calendar.
It will be the second time that he will miss action on home soil. He did not play in the 2023 tournament following a knee injury.
Kyrgios suffered a wrist injury in June, which was after his knee surgery. This made it difficult for him to make a comeback for the grass-court season.
He will now miss the Australian Open in back-to-back years after missing the rest of the 2023 season.
This is terrible news for Kyrgios, the Australian Open, and his supporters. However, he implied in his statement that it would be a mistake to come back while his body is still not entirely prepared.
Why Will Nick Kyrgios Miss 2024 Australian Open?
His knee surgery are wrist issues are the reasons why Kyrgios will miss this year’s action in Melbourne. He says the year was tough for him because he has been for the better part of the season due to injury.
“Obviously had a really tough year with injury, had that knee surgery and came back a little bit too soon and set me back a little bit, then obviously had some wrist issues,” his statement read.
The 28-year-old termed his absence next year in Melbourne a big disappointment because he has fond memories of this slam on home soil.
“So this is a very disappointing time for me, but I won’t be able to compete at the 2024 Australian Open. Obviously heartbreaking. I’ve had so many amazing memories there and I just want to really get back to playing at the top of my game and doing it right and I need a little more time.
He wants to only play at his best physically so that he wins a Grand Slam which he came near to at Wimbledon 2022.
Kyrgios played against Novak Djokovic at the Wimbledon Finals but lost. It was his first finals in a major tournament. Given his current knee status, Kyrgios is aware that he doesn’t stand a chance in winning the Australian Open.
Thus, he opted to extend his break in order to make a full recovery and play bigger and better.
“I was so close to winning a grand slam – I want to make sure that my body is going to have the time it needs to come back, so please bear with me,” he noted
