Kyrgios impresses in win over Medvedev Nick Kyrgios frustrated in-form Russian Daniil Medvedev in a promising claycourt display ahead of the French Open.

Kyrgios was defaulted at the Italian Open after a raging outburst. Trailing against Norwegian qualifier Casper Ruud in round two, he slammed his racket into the clay and kicked a water bottle. Kyrgios was due to start his Roland Garros campaign against Cameron Norrie of Britain.

Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn from the French Open for the second-straight year, just days after claiming the Paris grand slam "sucked" in a social media video.

The polarising Australian was defaulted following an on-court outburst in Rome last week, before hitting with Andy Murray at Wimbledon in preparation for the tournament.

But he won't line up at Roland Garros after announcing his withdrawal due to illness on Friday, with scheduled first-round opponent Cameron Norrie to play a lucky loser instead.

Last year he pulled the pin as he chased some respite from a nagging elbow injury but, other than his online grumbles, there were no suggestions this year that the 24-year-old wouldn't line up at the event until his announcement on Friday.

His withdrawal all but ends his brief but eventful clay swing that earned headlines off the court for his frank assessment of Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in the NCR podcast.

He took aim at Djokovic's "cringeworthy" post-match celebrations and Rafael Nadal's "super salty" double standards while also slamming "god's gift" Fernando Verdasco.
