    DO NOT USE - Tecnifibre Grips

    frequently happens with quite a few overgrips. Seems to depend upon how much you sweat. I find if there is any residue I let it dry and it will flake off with my fingers. As I always use an overgrip, to me it's no big deal

    My first woodie - a bit of a revelation

    Anyone playing with a torn medial meniscus?

    By pain I mean there was a bit of a burning sensation at the bottom of the knee. A bit of rest and it went away. At no time during the season was I eating Ibros or Aleve for any reason. This season I skied a lot of powder both light and heavy, Cut up powder and flat groomers. I am thinking...

    Anyone playing with a torn medial meniscus?

    Thanks for the response. This season I have met many skiers with torn meniscus,acl problems etc the latest medical idea seems to be " no pain, no surgery ". When in the off season, I live at the beach so following your advice should be simple. If I stick with tennis I think I will limit myself...

    Anyone playing with a torn medial meniscus?

    heard a popping in my knee when flexing. No pain at all. MRI shows the tear and zero cartilage within the knee. Age 63. Skied 6 weeks this winter. By the 5th week it was a bit tender. Took 3-4 days to recover back to no pain. Skiing is my passion but I love tennis as well but am worried about...

    Give yourself a year, live for tennis. Even if you don't make it you will have that year to look back on for the rest of your life.
