My elbow doesn’t hurt during practice if I don’t push too hard and I’m waiting to see how it will react during actual tournaments, although it is uncertain when will we play again.
Mentally, it will be tough to make a return after such a long break and balance matches and traveling again. I have been out of all that for a couple of years now but I had been through that in the past and I think the results will eventually come.
There are some new young guns on the Tour but I don’t know much about them, never playing against them before. My team and I were preparing a comeback for May or June; now we have to wait and see how the situation with a coronavirus will develop but I can’t wait to get back on the court.
We are all a little bit scared; things are serious and I’m trying to stay away from some bigger groups of people.
I’m training with my small team and we are staying away from the gym.”
