Nick Kyrgios has sent his social media followers a very rude message right after he had surgery on the knee injury that saw him jerkily pull out of the Australian Open, just 24 hours before he was due to play his first match.

The Australian star stunned the tennis world on Monday when he revealed that a torn meniscus and a cyst in his knee were so severe that he was unable to court at his home grand slam for fear of permanently injuring himself.

The 27-year-old announced he would travel to his hometown of Canberra to have the joint operated on, and on Monday shared the experience with his followers in two posts.

First, he posted a video of himself dressed for surgery with his knee freshly shaved and a healthcare worker in the background, accompanied by the caption “It’s time” and a frowning and sweating emoji.

The second post is a photo of Kyrgios sitting upright in a hospital bed after the procedure, pointing the middle finger to the camera as he reclines with breathing tubes attached to his nose and his eyes closed.

It looks like the surgery went well, as there are four green checkmarks with the photo, which appears to have been taken by Kyrgios’ friend Costeen Hatzi – who also posted it to her Instagram with the caption “poor baby.”

Kyrgios had previously shared a horrifying photo of the fluid having to be removed from his knee with a syringe as he attempted to overcome the injury before withdrawing from the tournament.

He and his physiotherapist Will Maher made the decision not to play in the Open just hours after training with doubles partner Thanasi Kokkinakis prior to the shocking announcement.

A routine MRI revealed the damage after Kyrgios suffered discomfort, and he and Maher decided to use his charity match against Novak Djokovic as a test of whether his knee would survive the two-week penalty at Melbourne Park.

“There’s a parameniscus cyst growing in his left meniscus, which is the result of a small tear in his lateral meniscus,” explains Maher.

“Even at that stage it was still worth pushing through to see if there was anything we could do to get him back on track.

To Nick’s credit he tried everything, to the point that even last week he had a procedure called a fenestration and drainage where they use a syringe to try to drain the cyst, of which Nick has some pretty gruesome pictures has.’

Kyrgios vowed to make a full recovery from the injury shortly after news broke that he would not be coming to court at the grand slam.
