Dokic's resilience is amazing. She's one of the best on court interviewers there is, and I hope she can find some peace in her personal life.

Madison Keys has to withdraw from this year's Wimbledon with an abdominal injury. She stated that she had to put her her health first and her body had to get back to 100%. Wishing her a speedy recovery.

You see? Those are the little details that tell you when somebody really love this silly game. Of course she can't train properly, but there's got to be something to do with a racquet... :clap:

It looks like Leylah is doing that in a prison yard :D .
She probably feels somewhat imprisoned these days, as well :cry: ...

Running them all over the place. I bet those kids were having a blast with that.

I'm glad that he spoke up as well.

Mental illness is so important to speak out about because so many are living with it in silence. With the whole Covid thing and having to deal with quarantine in the recent past it was really tough not being able to get out onto the courts and doing the regular practice that I would get sad quite a bit. I also was going into my 9th grade year, not this past school year but the year prior to that and was really excited not only it was my first year in high school but going to be my first year of high school tennis. Covid screwed up that as well and made school online and cancelled the tennis season. I was really upset. I wasn't able to train except at home in my room with small weights and it was really a bummer. So these players speaking out about their difficulties is huge because it gives awareness to others who are dealing with this.

What looks like two pieces of kinesio tape is all great and I am happy that got Rafa back out onto the court, but honestly there had to be more given to him in the locker room in term of some sort of medicine to get through the pain he was dealing with through the remainder of the match. Those two pieces of tape are great in tightening up the abs , but that is not going to cut the mustard on keeping the pain away through a few mores hours of playing tennis at a high level.

Oh, for sure he got something more. I want to know what kind of pain-killers they get, because I want a burlap sack of them.
And those two kinesio tapes? To me, cosmetics. I really can't see how that helps. But, I am not a physio.

I guess it helps in some way. I got some on my foot when I injured it and it helped a little, but my foot was still uncomfortable. I don't know what painkillers they get , but it isn't just regular Tylenol like I would take because that doesn't do much.
