TENNIS- Japanese star Kei Nishikori has returned to competitive circuit after being out for nearly a month with a knee injury.

Nishikori had suffered an injury during men's singles quarter-final match against Serbia's Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open.

He said, “I am feeling well. It took maybe one week and a little bit to get 100 per cent, but now physically I am going well. I practiced well last week in Florida.”

Nishikori, 29, is the top seed at Rotterdam. Karen Khachanov of Russia is second seed while Greek breakthrough star Stefanos Tsitsipas is seeded third.
