Nick Kyrgios is most likely to miss all the remaining tennis action in 2020. After withdrawing his name for the upcoming U.S.Open tournament, the Australian has now hinted to miss the other remaining tournament. Further, he has also shown his doubts to play anywhere in Europe this year.
Additionally, in his conversation with Nine’s Today show, he said, “It was an easy decision. To pull out of the U.S.Open with everything going on. With COVID.”
The world number 40 also said, “But even with the movement (Black Lives Matter) and protests, I don’t think it is right.” Further, he added, ” I don’t think at the moment it is the correct time to go ahead with sport in my opinion.”
Many Players May Skip The Event, Says Nick Kyrgios
“I am continually training. But also just staying at home with my friends and family. Making sure everyone’s safe”, he said.
Apart from Nick, many other top players are also looking to withdraw their names from the U.S.Open. Additionally, world number two, Rafael Nadal is the latest player to withdraw his name from the list. However, Nick was not very surprised by the Spaniard’s decision.
He said, “I don’t know if I necessarily feel better about it all.” Further adding, “I knew a lot of players will be looking to withdraw their names. I don’t think the U.S.Open will be happy to see some of the biggest names in the sport put their health at risk and go there and play.”
In addition, as the pandemic continues to persist, Nick is in doubt of returning to the court this year. Further, the Australian will not be participating in the U.S.Open this year. The tournament will take place from 31st August to 13th September.
