Nick Kyrgios and Milos Raonic have withdrawn from the Internazionali BNL d’Italia citing elbow and knee injuries respectively.
It is the second straight year that Kyrgios has withdrawn from the Rome Masters, having pulled out with a hip injury in 2017. The Australian, who took to the practice court at the Foro Italico on Friday, has not played a competitive match since reaching the quarterfinals at Houston last month.
World No. 24 Raonic lost in straight sets to fellow Canadian Denis Shapovalov in the third round at the Madrid Masters on Thursday and will now rest ahead of Roland Garros which gets underway in just over two weeks’ time.
Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut (hip injury), South Korea’s Hyeon Chung (foot) and Russia’s Andrey Rublev (stress fracture) join Raonic and Kyrgios on the sidelines and will be replaced in the main draw by Jared Donaldson (USA), Steve Johnson (USA), Ryan Harrison (USA), Peter Gojowczyk (GER) and Daniil Medvedev (RUS).
