Injured Kyrgios quits Wimbledon in third round

Nick Kyrgios was forced to retire from his Wimbledon third round match against Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime on Saturday with an abdominal injury.

The Australian won the first set 6-2 but dropped the second 6-1 when he called it quits.

"I did my abdomen at the end of the first set," said the 26-year-old Kyrgios.

"I haven't played at this level of tennis for a while and my serve is my main weapon. I need that to be firing on all cylinders."
