He underwent arthroscopic surgery in Canberra on January 23 to clear his lateral meniscus and remove the paralabial cyst.

Kyrgios himself posted a video of him walking with a cane on Instagram, captioned “Rebuild,” before adding in a Q&A with fans that he would spend time on the sidelines “sharpening” the video game Pokémon Unite.

On Wednesday, his friend and longtime manager Daniel Horsfall spoke in more detail about the 27-year-old’s recovery.

“The surgery went well,” he said on SEN Sportsday. “Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better result. We’re all happy, the team is ready and when he’s ready, we’re ready.”

Horsfall added: “He’s wearing a knee brace now and can only move about 70 degrees. We have a post-op appointment today to test its position, but we spend most of our time talking to the surgeon and physiotherapist.

“They’re really, really happy and he’s probably recovering faster than we expected, so that’s good news.”

Kyrgios has yet to play tennis this year as he also withdrew from the Fed Cup with a knee injury and his last singles match was at the Japan Open in early October. He did, however, compete in the men’s doubles with Thanasi Kokkinakis in the ATP Finals.
