The latest photos I have from tennis training with Romanian professional tennis trainer Viorel Dan Marinescu in February. For a month we trained together almost twice daily. I just had to, because I wanted to catch up on 9 month´s absence from tennis because of my severe ankle injury when I ran on a tennis ball and sprained my ankle last year we trained together.
He told me to be patient, as it will take time to get back in the game, in the feel of things on the court, because I only starting playing tennis a couple of years ago. If I had played continuously since I was little, it would be easier to comeback quicker. Since my story is different, I have to kind of start from scratch tennis-wise. Learn again, try again. I feel I am putting a lot of pressure on myself on trying to maintain all the good things that I have learned while training with Viorel, both in regards to competing and working out beside tennis. Structure and planning is key – but I must also remember to have fun along the way! That is no problem!
