A year for Sachin to recover

Former Rediff staffer Ashish Magotra, now with DNA, has this story of the annual Orthopaedic Association conference.
Dr David Young, who has operated on the likes of Ponting, Murali and others, was an attendee.
Young knows about tennis elbow not because Sachin Tendulkar was afflicted but because it is his business to know. "Tennis elbow destroyed former Aussie cricketer Dav Whatmore's career. He was scared of being operated upon. Every batsman would admit that he has had some form of tennis elbow," he said.
Young felt that given the way Sachin plays, anyone could have predicted that he would eventually get tennis elbow. "I don't think you can prevent tennis elbow. I think it will take between 1-2 years for him to recover his full strength once again," said Young.
