Injured Kyrgios out of Italian Open?

May 16, 2017 22:32 IST

Nick KyrgiosNick Kyrgios withdrew from the Italian Open in Rome on Tuesday with a hip injury, casting doubt over his participation in next week's French Open, local media reported.

Kyrgios was due to play Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round in Rome, but was replaced by lucky loser Alexandr Dolgopolov in the men's draw.

Kyrgios, who won two matches at last week's Madrid Open before losing to eventual champion Rafael Nadal, needed treatment for a hip complaint during his first-round win over Marcos Baghdatis in Spain.
