Unless it's a State Tournament I typically only play twice a week. Monday and Thursday nights. If I miss one of those days I may play on Saturday morning.

Maybe you should send that information to the USTA of NC who set up the schedule for the State Tournament.

It's on the inside of my lower leg bone, right below my kneecap. It looks like a small (maybe an inch long or so) diagonal line at the top of the bone with what looks like a small protrusion sticking out the side (doc said it looks like where the bone was trying to heal itself).

Thank you for that advice. I'll to remember to ask for that information and do the research.

As stated above, unless it's a state tourney (or I have some amazing demos), I typically only play twice a week. Coming from somebody who at one point ran over 30 miles a week, 6 hours of tennis doesn't feel like a lot.

The world is a magical place full of people waiting to be offended by something!
