The 26-year-old Kyrgios announced his withdrawal via social media, citing a lack of fans and injury anxiety as the main reasons for his withdrawal.

“Hey guys – I just want to tell you that I have decided to withdraw from the Olympics,” Kyrgios said. “It is a decision I did not take lightly. It was my dream to represent Australia at the Olympics and I know I may never get that opportunity again.”

“But I know myself too. The idea of ​​playing in front of empty stadiums does not suit me. It has never happened. Nor do I want to take an opportunity away from a healthy Australian athlete who is ready to represent the country.”

“I will also take all the time I need to get my body right. Good luck to all the Australians competing and I will see you on the court again soon.”
