Hi Everyone. It’s been more than a week since I left New York. And I’m sad to tell you all that I wont be able to play for the next 4 to 6 weeks. I have a stress fracture on my right foot. After going through a series of test in New York and seeing a doctor here in Moscow it was confirmed that I do have the injury on my foot. At first it was so hard for me to accept, I mean I honestly felt that my game was really going forward after my match against Vera. And reaching the quarterfinals of New Haven was a small victory for me. How I wish I could have played few more tournaments before the end of the season,, But sad to say I wont. They’re might be a small chance of playing Moscow but I will take it a day at a time. I might consider playing challenger also, but like I’ve said it all depends on how fast my foot will heal. Anyway I guess I’m fortunate it happened towards the last part of the season. God forbid it could have been worst. I know with the love and support of my family and friends I will overcome this injury. Thank you all for the continued love and support Everyone. I hope you will be with me every step of my recovery.
I am home right now slowly recovering. The doctors gave me this boot that I have to use for the next three or four weeks. I must admit having them on is like weird and funny. I feel like I’m a pirate. I can’t even go out with it, lol. And it’s just so hard to match the boot with my clothes : ) . I just try to see the humor side of it really. Hopefully when it’s time for the boot to retire, I’ll be able to walk normal again and even wear my clothes again without having problems matching them
. I believe everything happens for a reason. I know it hasn’t been a great year but that’ s tennis life. Thank God I have a life outside tennis. The most important thing is I am healthy, sort of
, my family is healthy, my friends are always there and the fans of course. I couldn’t ask for more right now. Instead of trying to be negative I would rather stay positive at a time like this. For sure I will keep you all posted as my recovery begins. Before I go special shout outs to my team, sponsors , coach and friends. May God bless each and everyone of you all. I hope to bring you good news in the future. Don’t worry I’m keeping the FAITH : )
Take care Everyone!
