Taylor Fritz has spoken out after Wimbledon quarter-final victor Rafael Nadal withdrew from the tournament. Fritz lost out to an injury-hampered Nadal in a thrilling five-set clash on Wednesday and the Spaniard had been due to face Nick Kyrgios in the semis, but has now pulled out. That’s because of an abdominal muscle tear that is said to be 7mm. 

The 22-time Grand Slam winner says the issue is too bad for him to play through the pain even though he finished his match against Fritz, winning a fifth-set tiebreak to progress to the last four. His withdrawal means Kyrgios will be given a bye into his maiden Major final.

The Australian is the first player in the Open Era to receive a walkover into a Wimbledon final. Fritz, though, is not bitter about the fact he would’ve been playing Kyrgios on Friday had Nadal retired mid-match rather than afterwards.

He wrote on Instagram: “Nah not looking for handouts, if I couldn’t beat him then I don’t deserve to be in semi. Simple as that.”
