I know that feel. In the past month I've been dealing with elbow, back, shoulder, and leg issues that just won't go away due to trying to get better. Sure I got better, but at what cost? Over 30 hours a week on court for 10 weeks does a number on the body, especially when it's all hard courts. A couple shanks and a bad ankle roll and I feel like death for a few days.
Needless to say, I'm on my way out of the game for a bit. Just too many injuries without enough return to justify the toughness. Definitely needing that break!
I believe what he says are nuggets of truth. And I collect them. And I store them in the lock-box of my soul. -JD
