Hi Lan -
Yeah, and like most players, you assume that if there is no pain, there is no damage. If you like, I can supply you with links and medical research documents that can explain why this assumption is incorrect. By the time you feel pain, the damage to the tissue has been done. Once you have tendon damage it leaves you vulnerable to chronic conditions, and recovery to 100% is not always possible.
Do you deny that there is an observable link between stiff strings, stiff racquets and arm issues in the tennis population at large? Are you suggesting that your particular experience puts the slightest of dents in that observable fact somehow?
