Australia’s United Cup co-captain Lleyton Hewitt has taken a swipe at Nick Kyrgios for an apparent lack of communication over his late withdrawal from the team event.
Kyrgios confirmed his withdrawal from the event just 24 hours out from its commencement, citing a need to recover from an ankle injury and be at his best for the Australian Open in January.
His absence saw Alex de Minaur take up the mantle of Australia’s No.1 male player, but he fell in straight sets to British No.1 Cameron Norrie in straight sets in Sydney on Thursday night.
