Kiwi according to the German commentator had pulled abdominals. Sounds like a four week break at least. :awww: Get well soon Kiwi!

What happened and how disappointed are you given that this is your thirteenth trip here?
A: It happened already in Roland Garros. I came here early and treated it well. Some days, I was feeling good, some days worse. But, I think that’s life. I knew it could always come back, I knew it could happen. So, I just tried to deal with it and it didn’t work out.

What is it?
A: Stomach muscle.

According to the German news on the website, Kiwi got the pulled stomach muscle already in Roland Garros. It got better in Halle, but according to a quote of Kiwi himself he "already sensed the muscle again this morning."

It's not yet sure if he can play in Wimbledon.

My advise: Cancel Wimbledon and cure the injury!
