Serena Williams injury advice for Tiger Woods

17th Mar 2016

Tiger Woods has not been short on advice from massive groups of people regarding his injury and back surgery. Serena Williams joins that list of people, but the difference is she’s a professional athlete with lots of experience playing through and recovery from an injury.

So what did she have to say?

“For me I say you should just try to enjoy your time off, and when you’re feeling better, get back into it, but it’s a process that you don’t want to rush,” Williams quoted to USA Today’s For The Win.

She adds, “When you’ve been doing this for 20 years it gets really repetitive, so you can just use it as a time to reboot so things don’t feel as militant.”

Tiger Woods recently said, “I am [being more patient], and I have to be with it. That wasn’t always the case. I’ve played through a lot of injuries. I’ve played through some situations I probably shouldn’t have, won some tournaments I probably shouldn’t have won.”
