I just arrived last night in San Diego for the USTA National Hard Court event. I am excited for a challenging tournament and opportunity.
Right off the bat though, I have some adversity to battle. While practicing Saturday afternoon, I pulled something in my left groin area enough that I had to stop. I have been icing and taking ibuprofen, and hoping for a recovery with this bad timing.
Today I just did a light hit with a friend of mine, and could still feel it, though not as bad as the initial injury. Hopefully, with more time it will heal before the tough matches begin. By then I should be able to play through it and mentally block it out to give everything I have.
If I can overcome this setback, it will be exciting to play and see what I can do! First match is tomorrow morning and I will update soon!
