Rhyne said that he had similar pain on the other side of the operated area after practicing in November. Per Martin Blackman, R was out training with Smee and Kudla last weekend but since then didn't see him in any videos, very unusual...have a feeling his back may have acted up again. Hopefully, that's not the case.


Trying to stay positive. A new video, I really miss R

Successful surgery

Itís nice writing to you all again. Even though I havenít played any tournaments since June, I do have some good news. About six weeks ago I had back surgery, and the doctors are optimistic that I will be able to make a full recovery and leave all my back pain behind me!

A disc in my back was basically crushing my nerve, which was the reason for my ongoing pain. During the procedure they cut me open about an inch and used a laser to shave down the disc a little to where it makes space for the nerve.

These past weeks I have been rehabbing in Tampa and it is my goal to make a return to the pro tour at the start of next season, which will be in January. As my ranking has dropped down completely I have to basically start all over in the lowest level of international tournaments.

In some ways it definitely scares me to have to start from the beginning again, but Iím very eager to get going. Itís going to be interesting to see how it goes. I may not be able to hit a ball in the court anymore, haha.

I feel so much better now than before the surgery. Just getting out of bed doesnít hurt anymore and I am able to put on my socks without pain. The last time I could do this must have been somewhere around October last year.

It was not fun to have played at about fifty percent of my abilities in the time before I decided to get the surgery done. In fact it was actually a nightmare. Now the hard part is done and Iím feeling optimistic about what lies ahead. Almost every athlete goes through some kind of injury and itís part of the game, unless youíre Roger Federer. Iím actually pretty lucky to have gone through 10-12 years without injuries.

I have already been going to the gym for five days a week and Iím doing a lot of swimming as well. I get all my rehab done in the mornings, so thereís plenty of time for me to relax too. The doctors have told me that the more I can rest and sleep, the better.

Iím spending a lot of my downtime fishing, which is my obsession, haha. I have the feeling I can already start to hit balls again now, but I have to be careful not to rush into things. In fact, I have been reminded this week again to make sure I take my time.

Two weeks from now Iíll head back to Tennessee, because a good friend of mine is getting married. Itíll be nice to spend a week with the family there as well. If all goes according to plan I should be able to be back in my normal training routines at the start of December.

Fingers crossed!

Rhyne

No music version. I want to go to Indian Wells next year but I doubt Rhyne will get his ranking up in time

Re: Rhyne Williams

Having a withdrawal...my motivation is so low when Rhyne is out. Honestly feel like taking the rest of the year off.
