Tennis news – ‘Disappointed’ Nick Kyrgios targets 2022 Australian Open return after knee treatment
Nick Kyrgios needs treatment for a persistent knee problem that has been bothering him for two months.
In August, the Australian withdrew from his first round match against Andy Murray at the Winston-Salem Open with knee pain before competing in the US Open, where he was eliminated in the first round by Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets.

The 26-year-old says he returned to Australia for treatment before seeking to return for the Australian Open in Melbourne next January.
“Hey guys, over the past two months I haven’t been 100% healthy,” Kyrgios wrote on an Instagram story.
I have had patellar tendinopathy in my left knee, and continuing to play without fully treating it can lead to additional pain and more severe setbacks.

“I have chosen to return to Australia for reassessment and plan to undergo PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment to settle in and rehabilitate my knee.
“I am disappointed that it has kept me from playing my best tennis and I hope everything goes well, I will be 100% back by the Australian Open.”
Kyrgios, who is currently ranked 96th in the world, has only played on the ATP Tour 15 times this year and has a win-lose record of 7-8.
