Nick Kyrgios advised to stop playing and rest ahead of Roland Garros
Nick Krygios’ participation at Roland Garros is in question after he revealed he was suffering with an elbow injury.
The Australian has had an injury-blighted season, and has already withdrawn from four tournaments.
He appeared at the Miami Open but sought medical tests after a disappointing performance, and the results have not been promising.
“After returning home and consulting with medical staff in Australia I have been diagnosed with Posterior Impingement and Ulnar Nerve Irritation and I have been advised to stop playing through it’, Kyrgios wrote on Instagram.
“After thorough investigations and careful consideration, I have had a corticosteroid injection to settle the pain and inflammation. Now to maximise my recovery I have to build the strength needed to compete at my best over the next month, ensuring I have confidence in my elbow before returning.”

Krygios has been pencilled in to play in three clay court tournaments as part of his Roland Garros preparations, at Estoril, Madrid and Rome, though whether that scheduled will be possible is now unknown.
