Nick Kyrgios Knocked Out Of Wimbledon On Day One

Twitter Reacts To Nick Kyrgios' Wimbledon Retirement Nick Kyrgios Knocked Out Of Wimbledon On Day One

Nick Kyrgios says he'll do "everything possible" to avoid surgery for a hip problem that forced him to retire from his Wimbledon first round against Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert on Monday.

Herbert - a doubles champion in 2016 - did put on a good show while the match was in full flow and Kyrgios admitted he could have progressed if he had been handed a kinder draw.

After losing in the second round at both the Australian and French Opens this year, Kyrgios's miserable 2017 continued as the world number 20 lost the first two sets 6-3, 6-4 against Herbert before deciding to call it quits due to the nagging injury.

"I've had this hip injury for pretty much the last six or seven months, so it's been giving me grief so hopefully it's settled down a little bit", Kyrgios said before the tournament. The young star has hip and shoulder niggles at present - which may have been the reason for retiring, and has also struggled for motivation since the death of his grandfather in April. It reflected his despair and the disappointment of a packed Court Three crowd who had rushed for the non-allocated seats to see a maverick player who is normally an acrobatic crowd-pleaser.

He praised his opponent after the match and said he "knew he was in trouble" from the outset. "I might need a bit of luck - and everything to fall into place - but I do believe I can win".

"I took some time off after Queen's and just rehabbed and looked after it". Never got it right.

"I spoke to the doctor before the tournament started". He was leaning towards me not even playing, ' he revealed.

"Probably not at the moment". Yeah, I mean, obviously I could feel it a lot.
