    What not to do when playing in colder weather and your hamstrings are
    feeling a little tight...

    about two weeks ago I was playing at night in about 40 degree
    weather. I didn't warm up that much and at one point
    I lunged for a wide, low shot and strained my lower back. Didn't seem
    like much at the time, but then about 2 hrs after I finished playing my
    back started to serious hurt. Next day. worse pain.
    Two weeks later, after some physical therapy, it still aches a little bit, but
    I'm finally able to run faster now and swing and serve harder.

    Sounds like you didn't stretch & warm up like you should.
