Looks like. I am recovered from my back problem although I still do many core workouts to keep extra fit. Playing again with no pain. Life is good again. I could not imagine never hitting a tennis ball again. I do prefer clay though as it is less demanding on your back and body overall. Or is it? Since the points last longer, less winners you are hitting more balls. So, you start getting tennis elbow or tendinitis there.Ugghhh. Just keep lifting some weights and exercise to keep playing.…Continue
