Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn his name from consideration for Australia's tennis team for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, citing "unfair and unjust treatment" by national Olympic officials.

Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic, who also withdrew from the Olympic tournament in August, were placed on notice by Australian team chef de mission Kitty Chiller last month after a number of behavioral issues on and off the court.

Kyrgios, who later joked about the threat on social media, said in a statement Friday that although he still had the backing of Tennis Australia and would have been chosen for Rio, "it's very clear to me that the Australian Olympic Committee has other plans ... it is with a heavy heart that I have had to make a decision not to compete."
