Kyrgios is trying to reach his first Grand Slam final. ATPTour.com looks back at the pair’s previous ATP Head2Head meetings.
Every clash between Nadal and Kyrgios is highly anticipated, and their 2022 meeting at Indian Wells was no different. This time, Nadal carried a perfect 18-0 record on the season into the match.
Kyrgios brought some of his best tennis, even earning two break points in his first return game of the deciding set.
But Nadal and his battling spirit refused to give in, and the Spaniard triumphed 7-6(0), 5-7, 6-4 after two hours and 46 minutes.
“That one hit pretty hard. I felt like, honestly, I was the one to end the streak,” Kyrgios said.
Rafael Nadal has announced that he is withdrawing from the upcoming Montreal Open as he continues to recover from an abdominal injury suffered in July at Wimbledon.
In a statement, Nadal shared that his injury has not healed sufficiently in order to play in Montreal, so he will continue to take time off to recover ahead of the US Open in late August.
“I have been practicing for a while now without serving and started with serves four days ago,” read Nadal’s statement via Tennis Canada. “Everything has been going well.
However yesterday, after my normal practice, I felt a slight bother on my abdominal and today it was still there.
The 36-year old Spaniard aggravated an ongoing abdominal issue that began at WImbledon when he suffered a seven-millimeter abdominal tear during a victory over Taylor Fritz in his quarterfinal match.
The injury forced Nadal to withdraw from the semifinal, ending his chances of a calendar Grand Slam and continuing a recent trend of injuries.
