Plans for Nick Kyrgios’ comeback were derailed by a foot injury received during the theft of his car.
According to Daniel Horsfall, Nick Kyrgios‘ manager, the Australian tennis player will not be able to compete in the French Open because of a foot injury he got when his Tesla car was stolen in Australia. In front of her home on May 1st, Kyrgios‘ mother was held at gunpoint by the thief who wanted the keys to her son’s green Tesla.
Before calling her son to explain what happened, Norlaila Kyrgios entered the residence and gave the keys to the owner. Later, Kyrgios‘ Tesla app assisted the authorities in finding the vehicle. Kyrgios withdrew from the French Open last week after undergoing knee surgery in January and not competing in any tournaments since 2023.
On the Australian’s withdrawal from the French Open, Kyrgios‘ manager
“They committed an armed robbery at the house during the event on May 1st. Nick cut the side of his left foot as a result of all that was happening. We have no idea how.
To put it simply, it has delayed him by roughly two and a half weeks from the start of his loading plan to return to the court for what we were anticipated would be the Grand Slam, according to Horsfall, who spoke to Reuters. The first assumption following Kyrgios‘ withdrawal from the French Open was that the Australian’s knee wasn’t yet prepared for the demands of a tennis match.
However, according to Kyrgios‘ agent, his knee is still in excellent condition. He was unable to slide or enter the court because every time he put on a shoe, it moved and then reopened. As far as we’re concerned, his knee is actually in excellent condition, and the procedure went smoothly.
His level of fitness is excellent. Just as we were finishing up that rehab, during the on-court loading, this bizarre accident occurred, according to Horsfall. Kyrgios will undoubtedly concentrate on getting ready to play again during the grass season now that he has been eliminated from the French Open.
