Nick Kyrgios ends season due to knee injury, aims to return for Australian Open

WATCH: Kyrgios last competed at Laver Cup, where he participated as part of Team World in both singles and doubles.
Nick Kyrgios has announced he will not play again this season in order to rest his injured knee, but still plans to compete in the Australian Open at the beginning of next season.
On an Instagram story, Kyrgios said he has had "left knee patella tendinopathy" for a couple of months and could experience "further pain and greater setbacks" if he kept playing.
"I've chosen to fly back to Australia to reassess and am planning to get PRP treatment to settle down and rehab my knee," he added. "I'm disappointed it has kept me from playing my best tennis and hopefully, with everything going smoothly, I’ll be back to 100 per cent by the Australian Open."
The 26-year-old Australian has played sparingly this season and stayed off the tour between the Australian Open and Wimbledon, where he retired in the third round with abdominal issues.
The announcement that he is shutting down his season comes following his participation in Laver Cup, where he played both singles and doubles.
A former world No. 13, Kyrgios is currently No. 96 in the rankings.
