No room for celebration: Nick Kyrgios paid tribute to Rafa Nadal after the Spanish tennis player was forced to forfeit for the Wimbledon semifinal against the Australian due to an abdominal tear.

“Different players, different personalities. Rafa Nadal I hope your healing journey goes well and we all hope to see you healthy soon! Until next time…,” the words on Instagram from Kyrgios, who reached the Wimbledon final for the first time in his career.

Now the Australian awaits his opponent: the winner of the other semifinal between title holder Novak Djokovic and home favorite Cameron Norrie.
