After a 20-month absence due to injury and hip surgery, Kei Nishikori is back on the court. It was worth the wait as Nishikori won the entire Caribbean Open straight away!
Kei Nishikori is a former US Open finalist. He was recently absent from the courts from October 2021 due to injury and hip surgery. No one knew if he would return to the game, and not only did he return, he won 10 of the 11 sets he played at the Caribbean Open and won the entire event.
After 20 months off, Kei Nishikori’s return to the court was worth the wait. After injuring his left hip which ultimately required surgery – and was forced to postpone his return multiple times due to setbacks that included spraining his right ankle – Nishikori was victorious at the Caribbean Open on Sunday.
