It’s been my dream to represent Australia at the Olympics and I know I may never get that opportunity again. But I also know myself. The thought of playing in front of empty stadiums just doesn’t sit right with me. Non ha mai,” he wrote on social media.

Kyrgios is ranked No. 60 nel mondo. He had to retire from Wimbledon during a match last week because of a strained abdominal muscle.

I will also take all the time I need to get my body right,” Ha aggiunto. “Good luck to all the Aussies competing and I’ll see you back on the court real soon.

The Australian native has mostly stayed in the country during the pandemic. He skipped the French Open before deciding to play at Wimbledon. He also missed the 2016 Giochi di Rio.

He has won four times this year.

There is one more major left on the tennis schedule this year – the U.S. Open in New York City. It’s unclear whether Kyrgios will be able to play.
