    Slipped on some ice and fell hard on my right side with my arm under me. Hurt like the dickens to breathe, cough, get up out of bed, etc. X-rays 2 days after say they can't see anything broken and must be a bruised rib(s).
    It's been 10 days now and still hurts like the day it happened. I tried to take a few swings with my racket and whoa every swing hurts, esp the service motion.

    I've read quite a bit of info regarding rib injuries on the web but nothing regarding tennis. Any one have experience with this? Any tips? Btw, being my right side and being that I'm a right-hander with a OHBH it seems to be the worst combo. Hope I'm not benched for 2 months! :cry:
