Romanian Simona Halep commented on playing with tape on her hip at the start of the US Open.
“A few days ago I trained for half an hour without a tape and felt pain. Perhaps this is a psychological moment, but the problem is still there, so it’s better to tap it.
The health problem has become the biggest problem for me this season. The calf injury was very serious, so I didn’t even know what to do. At first I was very upset, then I tried to recover too quickly to Wimbledon, which is why I missed another four weeks.
Now I realized: if something hurts, I need to stop and fully recover.
In addition, I realized that I was already at the age, because I am almost 30 years old. I was told that such injuries are quite normal for 29-30 years old, “- the press service of the tournament quotes Halep as saying.
