Nick Kyrgios ‘heartbroken’ after being knocked out of Japan Open over knee problem | Tennis News

Australian Nick Kyrgios said it was “heartbreaking” to have to pull out of the Japan Open before his quarter-final because of a knee problem he has struggled with since the US Open last month.
Kyrgios was scheduled to face Taylor Fritz in Friday night’s game but was knocked out shortly before, sending his American opponent into the semi-finals to face Canadian Denis Shapovalov.
The 27-year-old has been in superb form in the second half of 2022 as he won the Citi Open in Washington and reached his first major final at Wimbledon and the quarterfinals of the US Open.
“I played great tennis all year and was actually dealing with a bit of a knee problem during the US Open,” world number 20 Kyrgios told reporters.
“Honestly, I went home and probably didn’t get enough time off. I started training right away. When your body lets you down, it’s not a good feeling.
“I know in this case it’s probably overload rather than lack of fitness. I think it’s almost too much excitement to go out on the field and maybe train a little too hard. So that’s a positive thing, but It’s also very sad.”
Kyrgios plans to return to the ATP 500 event in Basel and the Masters 1000 in Paris.
