It was for a state championship, we only had 3 members on our roster, if I forfeited my court it would have made my other members have
to win in order to get the team win, and I wasn't about to let my team down when playing for a state championship...even if playing on only one leg. Thanks for the advice.

Thank you for your input and advice. I'll keep icing it and I plan to stay away from tennis for quite a while now.
One of my coworkers mentioned putting 'Tiger Bomb' on it...anyone ever heard of this stuff?
