Leksand extended the winning streak beat AIK

Nick Kyrgios withdraws from the year’s first tennis grand slam tournament due to a knee injury.

– I am devastated, of course, he said at a press conference.

Kyrgios, ranked 21st in the world, was one of the early favourites. He had a strong year last year, including reaching the final at Wimbledon and is the reigning double champion at the Australian Open.
