There is whole spectum of how severe a muscle tear can be - it sounds like maybe this was a relatively few fibers that tore rather than a major tendon or a wide tear at the muscle/tendon junction.

It sounds like a smart plan to take it easy for now.

Obviously if it is not getting better getting it checked out medically would be a good idea.

When you do start back to tennis you may want to do so by gradually increasing the duration and intensity of hitting sessions so as not to suffer a recurrence.

Good luck!
