It still plays pretty well especially on touch shots and still produces some of the best spin of any of the multis.
Tennis is cruel. Just as my tennis elbow went away, I got a wrist injury. Then when the wrist healed, on 1 shot last week my TE came back and is worse than ever. Time to hang up the rackets for a few weeks.
Yep, I've been there, Mike. I had pretty severe tennis elbow for a number of years. I don't have that any longer, just achilles tendonitis along with some shoulder and back problems. Good stuff...lol. I've walked away from the sport a few times, but I love it too much to give it up.
