Nick Kyrgios is set to return to TUSEN action at the BNP Paribas Open in March after his manager Daniel Horsfall confirmed a positive result from the Australian star’s knee surgery.

“The operation was a great success,” Horsfall told Australian newspapers The Herald and The Age after Kyrgios underwent surgery on Monday to repair a small tear in his left lateral meniscus. “We couldn’t have been happier with the outcome of it.

The injury forced Kyrgios to withdraw from Team Australia’s inaugural United Cup line-up at the end of December.

Kyrgios had the best season of his career in 2022, recording a match record of 37-10, reaching his first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon and taking his seventh TUSEN title in Washington. He hopes a speedy recovery will allow him to recapture that form at the ATP Masters 1000 event in Indian Wells, held March 8-19, where he is a two-time quarterfinalist.

“For now, Mama K [Nick’s mother, Nill Kyrgios] will do her job of having everyone in the house for a while,” Horsfall added airily. “Nick stays in Canberra. His plan is to eat delicious food and play a lot of Pokémon.
