Grass tournament hints Nick Kyrgios is ready to make long-awaited comeback

The Mallorca Championships organizers have seemingly confirmed that Nick Kyrgios is ready to make his comeback during the grass season. After withdrawing from the Australian Open, Kyrgios surgically addressed his knee injury.

Kyrgios, who hasn't played any tournaments in 2023, is expected to kick off his 2023 season on the grass. In March, the Mallorca organizers announced Kyrgios signed up to play at the tournament. On Thursday, the Mallorca organizers shared a post that suggests Kyrgios has confirmed that he will be ready to play in Mallorca after the surgery.

Kyrgios shared an update a few days ago

A couple of days ago, Kyrgios hinted he is still not feeling his best but noted that he is doing his best to return to where he wants to be.

“Not gonna lie… this has been a f------ grind. To get back after one of the best seasons of ANY tennis player last year. I don’t feel like myself, but I’m still trying," Kyrgios wrote on his Instagram Story this week.

Two weeks ago, Thanasi Kokkinakis - who is Kyrgios' close friend - revealed that he spoke with Kyrgios and that the 2022 Wimbledon runner-up was planning to make a comeback during the grass season. "I think the plan for him is to be ready for Wimbledon and play a few lead-ins.

Stuttgart (June 12-18) was up there, I think. I'm not sure if he's going to Queen's or Halle (both June 19-25), but hopefully he's ready. By all accounts, his recovery has been a bit slower than he thought, but I think he's on the mend now and it's looking positive for the grass," Kokkinakis told the Australian Associated Press before the start of the French Open.

Last year, Kyrgios made his debut on the grass courts in Mallorca. This year, Kyrgios is set to make his second Mallorca appearance between June 25 - July 01.
