In a recent podcast interview, tennis star Nick Kyrgios opened up about his challenges, expressing a desire to step away from the game.
The 28-year-old, who recently withdrew from the Australian Open due to health issues, underwent knee surgery earlier this year and faced setbacks with a wrist ligament tear.
“I don’t want to play anymore, to be honest,” Kyrgios shared candidly. Despite feeling exhausted and having undergone three surgeries, he acknowledged the need to continue. “I’ve got so much more to give, but for me, I don’t want to play anymore,” he added, citing his dream of starting a family without enduring constant pain.
The former world No. 13, who reached a career-high ranking in 2016, expressed heartbreak over pulling out of the upcoming Australian Open. Speculation about his tennis future has heightened during his prolonged injury absence.
Kyrgios outlined his plans, stating, “I only want to play for about another one to two years and be at the top and go out on my terms.”
He emphasized a desire to avoid further surgeries and believes he still can perform well in the next one to two years.
