Shoulder feels fine right now and in fact has felt pretty good for a several days now, but I haven't tested it at all. The last few days I've gotten those tennis texts from different buddies to play and I came close to cracking but didn't. I may play this weekend. The pain was a general discomfort I felt especially when serving or when my racquet was above my shoulder. I could still hit serves at about 80, 90 percent -- but that little something just forced me to hold back. Then the shoulder was very sore (a pretty constant dull pain) for two, three days after my last hit before finally dissipating. So, it's been 8 or 9 days now since hitting and I feel good, but I'm just a little nervous. If the pain returns when I hit again, I know I'll have to see an ortho. From what I've read, I think it might be a rotator cuff or 'shoulder impingement' issue; hopeful it was just too much playing that needed a good rest, but that's just the hope. Interesting about the Youtek irritating your shoulder/wrist -- more so than other sticks? Which Youtek were you hitting? Initially when I return to hitting I plan on mostly wielding the flexiest of my frames, the BC20, which was the stick my shoulder seemed to be feeling the best with in the days before taking the layoff.
