Nick Kyrgios withdraws: My elbow is just not ready
Nick Kyrgios is out of the Indian Wells Masters having conceded that he has not fully recovered from an elbow injury.
The Australian has not played since February’s Davis Cup, withdrawing from three subsequent events; Delray Beach, Rotterdam and Acapulco.
He had, however, hoped to contest the BNP Paribas Masters but announced on Friday night that it just wasn’t going to happen.
Absolutely gutted to withdraw today as Indian Wells is one of my favourite tournaments but my elbow is just not ready. I gave it as long as possible but I’m not at the level to compete yet. 🙏🏽 https://t.co/Aj0Q3jFBDT

“Absolutely gutted to withdraw today as Indian Wells is one of my favourite tournaments but my elbow is just not ready,” he tweeted.
“I gave it as long as possible but I’m not at the level to compete yet.”
Kyrgios’ place in the draw goes to world 108 Matteo Berretini.
