Roger Federer has returned to the practice courts just three weeks after undergoing surgery to his right knee. 

The world No 3 has not played since suffering a torn meniscus the day after his Australian Open semi-final defeat to Novak Djokovic in January and had surgery to correct the problem in February.

That operation appears to have been a success because the 34-year-old took to Twitter to reveal his delight at being back in training, writing: "Rarely felt so happy being back on a practice court".

The injury forced Federer out of the World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam and the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

His next scheduled tournament is the Indian Wells Masters on March 10, although he has not confirmed his inclusion in the event.
