Nick Kyrgios is confident he can overcome his injury woes and win his first Wimbledon title next week, the 22-year-old Australian said after winning an exhibition match at the Boodles tournament on Thursday.

After dropping the first two sets 3-6, 4-6, Kyrgios called for the trainer and retired from play.

Kyrgios was also forced to retire during his first-round match at the Queen's Club Championships in London last month after falling awkwardly, and had come into Wimbledon saying he was only about 60 to 65 percent fit.

"My preparation wasn't great". But I don't know. I wasn't going very hard.

The Australian struggled throughout the first-round match with his hip injury, bravely playing on, but proving no match for the Frenchman.

"But yeah, I mean, I had it after French Open".

"Some would say I'm probably not in the best shape this year. but I feel like if I'm serving well and I'm playing the right style of tennis, the sky's the limit at Wimbledon". "Hopefully get an injection or something, do rehab, and get healthy", Kyrgios said. "But I don't think I need it at the moment".

Herbert will now face either Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva or compatriot Benoit Paire in the second round.
