That poster annoys the crap out of me. I was so tempted to make a thread during Serena's first match where the Tennis Channel zoomed in on Patrick titled something along the lines of "OMFG Patrick is with Serena!!!!!111"

At least she's getting treatment. I've never heard of this before, but it seems to be a popular therapy in Europe.

Hopefully, it allows her to get back to playing and fit again. Indian Wells and Miami being a mess just makes me cringe at how a 90% in form Vika who's healthy would just dominate this crap.

There are obvious other benefits to this outside healing injuries. I've heard people claim these chambers allow you to train at a level you normally wouldn't be able to, the benefit can allegedly last for a few weeks, because it accelerates normal body processes.
Yikes. To heal an injury I can understand but training like that seems like a way to break your body down sooner or later. The lengths that athletes go to really is incredible.

I would guess she would be back for Madrid as well, if she 100% healthy

Unless she can't walk, I think she'll play Madrid for sure to gauge herself, like Indian Wells. After that she'll decide whether to finish the clay season.

On recovery times. The whole purpose of cryotherapy is it's meant to be quicker than surgery or just sitting it out. With this in mind I would say the plan has to be to be back for Madrid.

Wasn't she a finalist last year? If so she should ask for a WC (if fit) so she can at least try and defend some points.

Don't be so selfish.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Hopefully it works! I'm still 100% convinced though that she needs to examine/adjust her footwear. I really hope she's doing this as it seems so obvious .
