    I have all the symptoms. Woke up this morning with both hips killing me..2 days after my last match. I did hit the ball around with my wife yesterday, but that was equivalent to walking on a sidewalk. I play 2-3 times per week. My dad tells me that his hips hurt him too, and he doesn't really do anything other than walk once per day.

    I've really gotten into tennis the last 2 and a half years..I'm starting to fear that I won't be able to sustain this activity past 40 (I'm 36) with the amount of pain that I'm starting to feel. I'm 6'1 188lbs, which is pretty much what I weighed when I was 25, so..I don't think that it's a weight issue.

    There are clubs here with clay courts, but I don't make enough money to afford playing there regularly.

    How have others with this condition dealt with it? Any exercises, drugs, meditation methods, etc.
