Nigerian star, Henry Atseye, has described his recurring shoulder injury as ‘part of the game’ and should not disturb him when he takes on number three seeded player, Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan from India at the ongoing Governor’s Cup Lagos Tennis Open.
Atseye, who just returned from an International Tennis Federation, ITF Futures in Rwanda, told eyeonthesports.com in an exclusive chat, that he has been trying to rest the shoulder before the commencement of the championship.
According to him, “I suffered the shoulder injury during this tournament last year and since then, it has been a recurring injury.
“But it’s part of the game and of course, I’ve tried to rest the shoulder throughout this week so that I won’t have any reason to play below expectations”.
Eyeonthesports.com checks revealed that the player was clutching the shoulder throughout yesterday and the medics were seen attending to the shoulder, though he is yet to play any match at the tournament.
