Sebastian Korda announces withdrawal from Wimbledon

Following his first round loss on Monday at the Eastbourne International, Sebastian Korda has announced his withdrawal from this summer's Wimbledon Championships.

The American tennis star fell in straight sets to John Millman in the opening round at Eastbourne, and subsequently revealed he would be missing Wimbledon as he is currently struggling with "terrible shin splits and beaten up feet."

"Hi all. Sadly I had to withdraw from Wimbledon today after my match in Eastbourne," wrote the 21-year old on Twitter. "I have been dealing with terrible shin splints and beaten up feet for quite some time now and can’t go on with it anymore. I have been advised to rest and recuperate is the best way forward."

Although Korda did not give a concrete timetable for his return or whether he would undergo any medical procedures, the Florida Native did indicate he hoped to return in time for the US Open series later this summer.

"Hopefully will be ready for the US Open series swing," he added. "Thank you all for the support."
