Suara.com – Organizers announced that Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn from next month’s ATP/WTA Indian Wells Masters due to his failure to recover in time from knee surgery.
The world number 19 has not featured on tour since playing in Tokyo last October following her run to the quarter-finals of the US Open the previous month.
The 27-year-old underwent knee surgery in January to repair a torn left meniscus after pulling out of the Australian Open.
Kygios manager Daniel Horsfall later called the operation “a huge success” and indicated the notoriously temperamental tennis player was targeting a return to Indian Wells.

Kyrgios reached the quarter-finals at Indian Wells last season, losing in three sets to Rafael Nadal.
US media reports, as quoted by AFP on Tuesday, added that Kyrgios had also withdrawn from the Miami Open, which was held right after Indian Wells.
Kyrgios, who reached the Wimbledon final last season, escaped punishment earlier this month after admitting in a Canberra court to assaulting his then-girlfriend, Chiara Passari, in early 2021. (ANTARA)
