Nick Kyrgios withdraws from Delray Beach Open, citing right elbow

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn from the Delray Beach Open beginning Monday because of a right elbow injury.

Kyrgios was hurt in Australia's Davis Cup loss to Germany two weeks ago, and he withdrew from the ATP event in Rotterdam last week. He had been training in Delray Beach the past few days.

"I was working hard to be able to be fit and healthy, but my elbow needs more time," he said. "I'll continue to keep trying to get it right."

Kyrgios was seeded fifth.
