Kyrgios into Wimbledon final after Nadal withdraws

Nick Krygios is into the Wimbledon final earning a free pass into the decider after Rafael Nadal withdrew due to injury.


Nadal has been suffering from an 7mm abdominal tear which worsened during his semi-final victory.


“That’s confirmed. I have a tear in the muscle in the abdominal. The communication is too late because even like that I was thinking during the whole day about the decision to make." Nadal said.

“But I think it’s doesn’t make sense to go (on). Even if I tried lot of times during my career to keep going under very tough circumstances, in this one I think it’s obvious that if I keep going, the injury going to be worse and worse.


Kyrgios is first Australian male player to compete in a Wimbledon final since Mark Phillipoussis in 2003.
