Daria Savill recalls the fight against the chronic pain caused by the Achilles problem – Tennis Sports

Former world No. 20 Daria Saville (Gavrilova) told the team that her pain was “probably tenths.” Saville had been hampered by Achilles tendon problems for years before deciding to have surgery this February.

After losing to Ashleigh Barty in the second round of the Australian Open, Saville had enough chronic pain and decided to focus on returning to 100% health. “I told them that my pain was probably tenths,” Saville told News Corp on Tuesday.

“Everyone on my team said,” That’s not good. Are you serious? You’re probably overreacting, “I said,” I can’t continue this. ”

“I wanted to get it, but it’s never certain,” Savill said.

“I obviously didn’t play much this year, but I showed a good level in Thailand at the Billie Jean King Cup, had a really good training week and won a pretty good victory (against Greet Minen).” I came and was able to play good tennis, so I think I was rewarded with a wild card.

“I think it shows that I’m not the only one who believes I can get back to the top 50. That’s my biggest goal right now.” Saville focused on the big picture and thought that surgery was the best way to go.

“This was basically the last option, but I thought,’If you want to continue playing tennis and get the best shot, you have to do this,'” Savill said. From 2019 to 2021, I didn’t play much. I thought it wouldn’t get worse if I was conservative and rejuvenated, but I actually played. ”
