Talk Tennis Guru
Well, I am getting the hip replaced, soon.
Since this post, I have had some bad days with this hip. I played four doubles matches in two days at sectionals a few months ago, and it was pretty messed up afterward.
To play a match now, I have to take two Aleeve in the morning and two Tylenol before the match. This is not sustainable.
It throbs at night. I feel it on the Peloton. Ab exercises are uncomfortable.
If I walk for an hour, I’m limping a lot. I’m planning a big, outdoorsy vacation later this year, and I cannot take this bum hip with me. If I do, I will be sitting in the car when others are kayaking.
I’ll let you know how it goes. I hope I can get back to tennis. I will lose my spot on my teams, and I don’t know how I will play well enough to ever earn my way back in.
All the best on a smooth procedure and recovery. You'll be flying around the courts like Swiatek [relatively speaking]. Even Becky won't be able to get you down.
