Kyrgios, who was seeded 17th in Indian Wells, withdrew ahead of his opening second round match against Russian Danil Medvedev.

"Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn from the Paribas Open with the elbow injury that forced him to withdraw from several tournaments leading up to the Paribas Open," tournament spokesperson Tom Barnes said.
