Nick Kyrgios’ Knee Surgery Recovery Plan Revealed – And Pokemon Plays A Big Role Along With His Mum


Nick Kyrigos’ knee surgery was a success and the controversial tennis ace should be on track to compete again in March, with his manager revealing the star’s recovery plan for the next few weeks. 

The Aussie world No.21 stunned the tennis world last week when he revealed a torn meniscus and cyst in his knee were so serious he couldn’t take to the court at his home grand slam for fear of injuring himself permanently.

The 27-year-old announced he’d be travelling to his home town of Canberra to have the knee operated on, and on Monday he shared the experience with his social media followers in two posts.

Kyrgios will remain in Canberra with his family as he recovers over the next few weeks before making a planned comeback to the ATP tour in early March, says his manager Daniel Horsfall.

‘For now, Mumma K [Nick’s mother, Nill Kyrgios] will have her work cut out for her having everyone around the home for a little while. Nick will stay back in Canberra. His plan is to eat delicious food and play a lot of Pokemon.

‘But on a more serious note, Will [physiotherapist Will Maher] and NK will be in the gym still working on the rest of his body to make sure he stays fit and fresh in the meantime.’

The Australian No.1’s post-op recuperation began with tuning in to watch Alex de Minaur take on Novak Djokovic at Melbourne Park.

Although Djokovic beat Kyrgios in last year’s Wimbledon final the Aussie has a better head-to-head record against the 21-times grand slam champ, defeating him on both their previous encounters, albeit both were back in 2017.

Kyrgios and his physiotherapist Will Maher made the decision not to play in the Open just hours after he had a workout with doubles partner Thanasi Kokkinakis prior to the shock announcement.

A routine MRI revealed the damage after Kyrgios suffered discomfort, and he and Maher decided to use his charity match against Novak Djokovic as a test of whether his knee would stand up to two weeks of punishment at Melbourne Park.

Kyrgios is very close with his family – including mother Nill, brother Christos, sister Halimah and father Giorgos – and has previously revealed he didn’t know how long he had left in tennis as he grappled with the desire to spend more time with them.
