As such, this was a minor grade 1 compared to other accounts here. I will be taking it easy for the next 2 months b/c I can see how people get caught off guard and re-injure this. I might do some baseline hitting tomorrow with a ball machine.
I just recovered from a grade 2 and it took me 2 months so you should be fine if you give it that much time. My path back to the courts went physical therapy > ball machine hitting > doubles > singles. Probably the biggest take away from all of this is a much greater appreciation for stretching calves, hamstrings and glutes. Best of luck with your recovery.
