Has anybody had any experience coming back from these sorts of cartilage tears? Both time I did it running backwards for an overhead.

I'm a little overweight, so this is probably going to be my first solution.
I'm a 4.0 - 4.5 rated player and played a lot when I was younger, then had quite a long lay off, and then got back in to it again.

Should I give up on tennis for my knee's sake?
I think you should give up hard court tennis if your knee hurts a lot and further damages can cause disability when you are older like 60+.
