Your theory of a recent injury may be the reason for the swelling.

Unfortunately, if it isn't getting better with a period of rest, you likely need to be formally evaluated by a sports medicine orthopod to find out what really is going on.
I started actually resting it after last post. The swelling has mostly come down but I'm left with a lot of bruising. Purpley bruise on the inside of the kneecap. If anything it feels more achey than it did before, I dunno if that is just the healing process. Ah the things that keep me away from tennis
