A couple thousand dollars in Open tournaments from the summer which is pretty cool, and there is major potential to make even more than that. I think I played about 13 tournaments, so its definitely alot of tennis and more than most people care to do. Most of them give about 500-1000 for the winner, and about 300-500 for runner-up. Some even have a bit more than that offered. I guess it beats mowing lawns or something else as a summer job. Im not 100% actually, and I dont think I ever will be. I was offered the option of surgery but after the cortisone injection I went from like 30% to 80-85% and I can live with that. Also, it doesnt bother me at all playing tennis or doing most things, its only when I put my arm under major stress or in certain positions that its painful. I was under the impression you were all recovered, I cannot imagine having to wait and rehab so long! It is good to hear you are recovering though and Im sure youre extremely anxious to be past all of that and play some tennis! You must be a pretty good player yourself from what you say, so good luck to you as well in any tournaments you play!
