This is a bummer.

Sadly, this is too common in the tennis world, the players don't take good enough care of themselves for some reason.

Too bad he's had back issues, glad he's back on court, hopefully he will be back playing matches soon.

Good news: Rhyne is back on the court
Bad news: I don't really understand kids these days

I have hurt my back again


I wish I could tell you all right now that I am fully prepared for a new season and my injury woes are behind me… but I’m very disappointed to say that I have hurt my back again and it’s not looking good. It’s actually worse now than before I had my surgery.

In my last blog I said I had encountered a minor issue during practice and it turned out to be just that. After a bit of rest, I was back to full practices, full workouts and for 2 1/2 weeks I was feeling great.

Then, during a routine practice, I felt something weird hitting a backhand and 20 minutes later I could barely walk. I had an MRI done the next day and it was bad news. The whole disc on which I was operated is in bad shape, and to make matters worse I also herniated another disc, right above it.

Things aren’t looking all that well right now. I can’t have another surgery on my back, otherwise I would have to have a procedure done which is called a ‘fusion’, and that would mean that my professional tennis career is over.

What I need to do now is start the complete rehab procedure again, just as I have done four or five times before I eventually decided to have the surgery done on my back in the first place. This will take three to four months at least.

The frustrating thing is that when I explained to my doctors how I went about my rehab after the surgery, they told me that I had done everything right. That I still injured myself again now makes it even harder.

I have been told that it’s basically a 50/50 chance now for me if I’ll have a future as a professional tennis player. I could do everything right for the next few months and keep struggling with back issues, or maybe it will turn out to be a manageable situation in the future.

There’s nothing left for me to do now than do all the rehab work once more. Walk on the treadmill, do my stretching exercises and work on my core. I have to try to stay patient and reset mentally.

Hopefully in my next blog I’ll be able to give you better news. Thanks for reading and supporting me.
