He posted a photograph of him sitting down with what seems like an intravenous drip hooked up with his still left arm which he captioned, “This spider chunk outta contro’’.
“Christmas distinct each individual yr,” extra Kyrgios, who has a playful feeling of humour with his social media followers.
Brisbane Intercontinental match bosses did not answer to requests for remark about the severity of the chunk, but it is identified the Canberran has a flight booked to Brisbane right now, even although he does not have a courtroom booked for follow.
Kyrgios is seeded eighth for the Brisbane Intercontinental, which is the only title he gained in 2018 and which begins on Monday to start his Australian Open up marketing campaign.
The Australian No.two, rated 35th in the globe, finished his 2018 time early following an elbow personal injury recurred in Oct, forcing his withdrawal in the 2nd spherical of a Moscow match.
