TENNIS star Nick Kyrgios is making efforts to move on from his wild night out after retiring hurt from Wimbledon, documenting an intense workout in a gym.

And a cryptic message posted with the photos has given rise to speculation he’s trying to build bridges with girlfriend Ajla Tomljanovic, who has deleted her Instagram page and gone to ground after photos of emerged of Kyrgios partying with two leggy 18-year-olds hours after he retired from Wimbledon in the first round.

“Working hard for what matters,’’ Kyrgios captioned the photos on his Instagram page, accompanied by five photos of him decked out in gear from sponsor Nike, exercising in a gymnasium.

He then added the words “putting things right,’’ thought to be a message to Tomljanovic, the 24-year-old Australian-Croatian tennis player he has been in a relationship with for the past two years.

The 22-year-old Kyrgios, who has an ongoing hip injury, was roundly criticised for retiring hurt in the first round of Wimbledon on Monday while two sets down, then partying all night with two young women, later identified as former Australian junior player Monique Belovukovic, 18, and her British friend, Chelsea Samways, also 18.

It was not clear last night where the photographs of Kyrgios in the gym were taken, although they were made public midafternoon Australian time.

He has an appointment with a hip specialist in Melbourne on Monday but it is not known if he will keep it.

Kyrgios was one of several who turned up at Wimbledon but retired hurt in the first round, pocketing almost $65,000 each for their appearance but infuriating fans, some of whom had queued for hours to get a ticket.

Capping off a bad week for Australians at Wimbledon, fellow Aussie Bernard Tomic lost in the first round and copped a $20,000 fine and lost his racquet sponsor after later saying he was a “little bit bored’’ and that he had called for a medical break even though he wasn’t injured.
