The inevitable has happened!

22-time grand slam champion Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from his semifinal clash against Nick Kyrgios due to an abdominal tear.

"I think it doesn't make sense to play. I feel very sad to say that," 36-year-old Nadal said.

In his quarterfinal match, the two-time Wimbledon champion took a medical time-out and ignored calls from his family to quit the game before emerging victorious in the fifth-set tiebreak.

With Nadal pulling out, Australia's Nick Kyrgios gets a walkover to the final, where he will play either No.1 seed Novak Djokovic or Britain's Cameron Norrie.
