Kyrgios withdraws from Rome Masters due to injury

IANS logoIANS 16-05-2017

World No.18 Kyrgios, who fell in the knockout stages of the Madrid Open against Spanish Rafael Nadal, was going to meet Serbian Novak Djokovic in the round of 16, but withdrew because of a hip problem, according to the organisers of Rome Masters, reports Efe.

The absence of the Australian presents a chance to world No. 89 Dolgopolov, who will meet Spanish Roberto Bautista Agut later on Tuesday in the first round.

Dolgopolov lost on Sunday against the Spaniard Nicolas Almagro in the qualifying rounds of the Rome tournament.
