Nick Kyrgios dejected

Nick Kyrgios is a major doubt for the US Open after pulling out of the Citi Open with a hip injury.

The Australian recovered from a hip injury to find some fine form during grasscourt season, fuelling hope thathe could be ready to make a major breakthrough.

However, his injury curse has struck again and he’ll now sit out the Washington ATP Tour event.

“Absolutely gutted to have to withdraw from the Citi Open,” Kyrgios tweeted.

“I’ve done all I can to get my hip ready but ran out of time.

“I want to thank Keely (O’Brien, tournament director) & her team for the support and apologise to the fans. I’ll be back!”

The US Open starts on August 27th.
