Nick Kyrgios owns a 7-6 record this season.

The Aussie was scheduled to play former World No. 1 Murray

Nick Kyrgios withdrew from the Winston-Salem Open on Sunday evening due to a left knee injury before a scheduled first-round showdown against former World No. 1 Andy Murray.

Kyrgios and Murray were set to clash for the seventh time in their ATP Head2Head series (Murray leads 5-1) and for the first time since the Aussie triumphed at The Queen’s Club in 2018.

Kyrgios owns a 7-6 record on the season. The 26-year-old most recently competed in Toronto, where he lost a three-setter in the first round against eventual finalist Reilly Opelka.

Murray will now play lucky loser Noah Rubin.
