Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from his Wimbledon semifinal against Nick Kyrgios with an abdominal injury.

Nick Kyrgios has told Rafael Nadal that he hopes the Spaniard's "recovery goes well" after the 22-time Grand Slam title winner was forced to withdraw from their Wimbledon semifinal.

The pair was scheduled to renew its fractious rivalry at the All England Club on Friday with a place in the final at stake.

However, Nadal pulled out of the match on Thursday after failing to recover from an abdominal tear.
