Juan Martin del Potro has entered Kuala Lumpur, indicating that the former U.S. Open champion will attempt to make his comeback from wrist surgery during this season.

The 250-level tournament, played in September, said in a statement that it would be del Potro's first event or among his first events following his return. The Argentine recently began hitting on the courts again, two and a half months after surgery on his left wrist, but is wearing a splint while playing.

In addition to del Potro, Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic have also entered the tournament.
