Nadal withdraws from Wimbledon due to abdominal tear, Kyrgios receives walk over into maiden Grand Slam singles final
Rafael Nadal will not renew his rivalry with Nick Kyrgios tomorrow afternoon after withdrawing before their semi-final clash at Wimbledon with a third title at SW19 not on the cards this year for the great Spaniard.
This means a potential calendar Grand Slam will also come to an end after he won the Australian Open and French Open earlier this year and now Kyrgios is into his first Grand Slam singles final due to a walk-over at the age of 27.
It is all due to an abdominal tear which as reported earlier today was 7mm but that Nadal still vowed to play on but it seems now he has taken the decision not to go through the same rigour that he did against Taylor Fritz tomorrow.

Can Kyrgios finally fulfil his promise on Sunday? He will now face Novak Djokovic or Cameron Norrie who will face off in the sole semi-final in the schedule with the Women's final seeing Elena Rybakina and Ons Jabeur facing off set for Saturday.
If the Brit can knock out the defending champion, two new Grand Slam singles champions will be crowned.
