I had a 70% tear in the Supraspinatus and had surgery in June 2010. I came back to USTA tennis about 9 months later, just playing doubles only. I've been religious about continuing my PT and keeping the entire shoulder structure strong including Scapular Stabilization exercises.

Plan on a month of horrible sleep while you wear the sling but after that, things will improve.
