Last year’s Wimbledon runner-up Nick Kyrgios and this year’s No. 30 seed became a late absentee withdrawing on Sunday evening due to a torn wrist ligament which he picked up in the Mallorca Championship last month.

Kyrgios was due to play David Goffin on Court One on Monday

He confirmed his withdrawal in a statement on Sunday ‘I’m really sad to say that I have to withdraw from Wimbledon this year,’

‘During my comeback I experienced some pain in my wrist during Mallorca. As a precaution I had it scanned and it came back showing a torn ligament in my wrist. I tried everything to be able to play and I am disappointed to say that I just didn’t have enough time to manage it before Wimbledon”

“I’ll be back and as always I appreciate the support from all my fans.’
