Roger Federer tweeted today that he will make a surprise return at the Miami Open which begins late next week.

Federer underwent surgery on his left knee last month which forced him out of Rotterdam, Dubai and Indian Wells. He announced his next event as Monte Carlo, but clearly after weeks of rehab he is feeling better than he expected.
Federer won the Miami title in 2005 when he came from two sets down to beat Rafael Nadal and 2006 when he beat current coach Ivan Ljubicic in three tiebreaks, but hasn’t been back to the final since. And he’s only played there once in the last three years, losing in the 2014 quarterfinals to Kei Nishikori.
No word if Monte Carlo remains on the schedule.
