In the pull out series from 2015 Hopman Cup tournament, one more setback for the competition has occurred as Australian 19 years old Nick Kyrgios has been ruled out to participate in the XXVII edition of hopman cup beginning from 4 January. This is the fourth withdrawn from a player in hopman cup 2015 after Tsonga, Jack Sock and Stepanek. Matthew Ebden will represent Australia in hopman cup with Casey Dellacqua.
Nick Kyrgios said, “Being selected for your country is always a privilege and I wish I could be there. I hope to be able to play at the Hopman Cup one day in the future.”
Kyrgios came in the highlights when he beat Rafael Nadal at Wimbeldon.
Matthew Ebden said, “It’s unfortunate that Nick has had to withdraw, but I can’t express how honoured and excited I am to represent Australia at the Hopman Cup. Growing up as a junior in Perth, the Hopman Cup was our event. It was the tournament I went to when I was younger and it was one that I always wanted to play.”
Kyrgios was set to play with Casey Dellacqua in the tournament but its unfortunate for him to pull out from the 2015 hopman cup. Ebden is excited to be a part of Australian side.
“I am pumped to play alongside Casey, another West Australian and someone I have known for many, many years,” Ebden added.
