Wimbledon 2022: Debate over Nick Kyrgios’ automatic entry into final after Rafael Nadal walkover

Taylor Fritz can consider himself pretty unlucky.

The American No.11 seed pushed Rafael Nadal to his limit in their Wimbledon quarter final, fighting the Spanish legend all the way before a gut-wrenching loss in a fifth-set tiebreak.

But even more unfortunate is seeing your opponent edge you out – and then look on in horror as he’s unable to take his place in the semi final that you were so close to being in.

Nadal’s exit from his scheduled blockbuster clash with Aussie Nick Kyrgios on Friday night (WA time) has raised the question of whether Fritz should have been allowed to take Nadal’s place as a ‘lucky loser’ injury replacement.
