Kyrgios retires from Wimbledon with hip injury

Nick Kyrgios has retired from his first-round match at Wimbledon after losing the first two sets.

The 20th-seeded Australian was trailing Pierre-Hugues Herbert of France 6-3, 6-4 when he called for a trainer to work on his left hip. He then decided to stop the match.

“Probably get an MRI tomorrow,” Kyrgios said. “Hopefully get an injection or something, do rehab, and get healthy, I guess. I can’t really do anything. You know, it’s just a bit unlucky what happened. I mean, yeah, there’s worse things in the world.”

Kyrgios also retired with an injury from his first-round match at Queen’s, a Wimbledon warm-up tournament.

“I mean, I kind of knew I was in trouble,” Kyrgios said. “I have been feeling my hip ever since I fell over at Queen’s. Never got it right. I was doing everything I could to help it, but just not enough time.

“Yeah, I mean, I just wasn’t 100 percent. You know, nothing take away from him. He plays great grass court tennis. He serves well. So he’s going to do well.”
