Nick Kyrgios withdrew ahead of his match later today against Roger Federer in the Indian Wells quarterfinals, 21-year-old announced on Twitter.
“Unfortunately I am unable to play today due to sickness. At this stage we think it’s food position, and I’m praying it’s nothing more. After a restless night of being sick I have nothing left and to play a great champion like Roger, I need to be at my best to have a chance.
“I don’t take this decision lightly, these are the matches we train for but I’m in no fit state to take to the court. I’m sorry to the fans but I have to put my health first and I hope you understand.
“I want to wish Roger the best of luck for the rest of the tournament and thank everyone for their support so far here at the BNP Paribas Open. I will definitely be back. Thank you.”
Kyrgios’ withdrawal markes another black eye for controversial Australian.
