Poor Sabine is hurt again.
Some general thoughts :
I can`t really get is why there are so many players on the tour who are hurt and it`s just the start of the season. Probably it`s because of the start of the season, the players are no more used to that kind physical and mental activity.
Anyway, it has to be a part of the preparation for the season to prevent things like that.
If you look at the efforts and improvement of the sports medecin, it actually should be no problem to find a more or less accurate way to do so for every kind of player.
I think that there are not so many problems in this context at other professional sports.
Some different aspects -
Tennis is an individual sport and the constitution of the single player matters a lot.
The men are less affected than the women, although they have an even longer season and play best of five at GS.
It strains the body pretty much, mainly caused by the changing frequency of the matches. When you go out in the first round you have a kind of break, and when you reach the final of the next tournament the physical challenge is enormous, compared to the week before.
But if you compare it to soccer for instance, it seems to be much more "healthy".
The muscle and joints of the body are much more equally involved in the motions.
So I don`t really know what to think about it. Meanings ?
