In Daily Drops today: Jannik Sinner out of Hamburg due to injury, Rafael Nadal drops big hint he will be fine for the US Open series, and more details on Nick Kyrgios Netflix documentary.

Jannik Sinner carrying an injury

Jannik Sinner made a serious impression at Wimbledon as he beat Carlos Alcaraz before losing a five-set thriller to Novak Djokovic.

He was due to return to action this week in Hamburg, but that now won't be happening.

"After discussing with my team, we've come to the decision that I won't be playing Hamburg," Sinner said.

"I slightly twisted my ankle when I fell during my quarterfinal and as a precaution, we decided it was the best to take some more time before my next event in Umag.

"I was looking forward to playing in Hamburg which is a city and event I like very much."

This is one of those where injury plays a minimal part. Sinner has no points to defend from Hamburg last year and, like many other players, his mind is likely more on the US hardcourt swing instead.

He has no points to defend in Umag either, so it will be interesting to see if that one falls by the wayside too.

Rafael Nadal readies outfits for US Open series

Rafael Nadal is currently in Spain recovering from the injury that put him out of Wimbledon, but he appears to be actively planning to be back for the US hardcourt swing.

Details of his planned outfits for the events have been revealed on social media, so it's probably safe to assume we will be getting a good Rafa fix this summer!

More details of Nick Kyrgios documentary

It's pretty common knowledge that Netflix will soon release a documentary about Nick Kyrgios' run at Wimbledon this year.

We are slowly learning more about it, with the UK media reporting it will earn him 'millions'. In fairness, I don't think anyone thought he'd be doing it for free.

"Sports documentaries are working well for Netflix," a 'source' for the company told the Daily Mail. "They get huge viewing figures across the world. Nick is fascinating to watch both on and off the tennis court. His antics at Wimbledon made him a household name.

"This film will feature footage, which could be explosive – and compulsive viewing. Wimbledon was a very colourful time for him.

"It is also expected to feature interviews with Nick and other members of his team."
