Hace unas horas estaba en Australia, hoy en la Clínica Mayo. Por recomendación de mi médico, me sometí a una pequeña cirugía para solucionar el problema que me causaba dolor en la muñeca. Hoy estoy con más ganas que nunca para volver a la cancha más temprano que tarde, jugar al tenis sin molestias y disfrutar del cariño de ustedes. Comenzaré la rehabilitación en dos semanas. Gracias por todo!!
