A regular visitor to this site asks a tennis-medical question that I cannot answer. Does anyone out there have an opinion that could help?
George, I enjoy reading your site. I am 53 and getting serious about tennis (currently a 4.0 player). But I suffer from type II diabetes, and a certain amount of anxiety/depression. Do you have any tennis colleagues who have similar conditions that I could consult with?
I’m wondering if the stress hormones running through my body when I get in “epic battles” on the court could actually be having, on balance, a detrimental effect on my long term health?
A recent nuclear stress test showed a 50% blockage in one of my coronary arteries. I’m just interested in comparing notes with fellow tennis players.
