Kei Nishikori wins Mark Knowles Celebrity Invitational in Bahamas

Kei Nishikori is back from his knee injury with a win at the Mark Knowles Celebrity Invitational in Bahamas.

He participated along with other pros such as Mark Knowles (of course), Alex Kuznetsov, Xavier Malisse, Hugo Armando, Ryan Sweeting, Don Johnson, Sabine Lisicki, and Michaela Krajicek.

Kei won the Celebrity Pro-Am last weekend by playing against amateur and local Bahamian businessman Jeff Everett.

The event raised over $100,000 for three children’s charities.

Knowles who was born in Nassau launched the first Mark Knowles Celebrity Tennis Invitational in Paradise Island in order to support different Bahamian charities. Andre Agassi and James Blake are among the high profile tennis players who have hit the courts in the past.
