My tennis game is currently on hiatus. I pretty much destroyed my ankle last week, and I'll be out for at least a few weeks. I'm sad. Just as I was starting to get pretty good at tennis, and really good at basketball (even with my lack of height) I go and make a retarded move in a retarded game of crunch against some nice guys, but guys I probably shouldn't be playing ball with. I think I've gotten to the point athletically in both sports that I should only seriously engage in competition with people at or beyond my level. I'm also at the age now where that last statement begins to make sense.
I'll be careful the next few weeks, and rehab my ankle to get it stronger before I play any full contact basketball. But, I think tennis can get me back into basketball even quicker. For one, there's not a whole lot of leaping involved, especially with lots of other ankles and feet to land on nearby. For two, there's not any contact so I can recover some of my leg strength while keeping my ankle safe from any cheap injuries. I think I'll be good to hit the courts in about 2-3 weeks if I'm lucky and I'm looking forward to it.
