RE: Maia Lumsden


Maia has revealed in an interview with the Scotland Herald (paywall) that she has been seriously ill with COVID-19

https://www.heraldscotland.com/sport/19418318.tennis-ace-maia-lumsden-reveals-horror-mental-physical-covid-battle-ahead-return-court/

On returning from Istanbul last year she started feeling unwell and tested positive for covid. She says it has taken months for her health to improve been pretty much bed bound. She was fearful her tennis career was over, as walking up the stairs saw her heart rate go up to 160. Every time she started to feel better she tried to do light exercise but she'd have a relapse and it would send her back to bed.

"The first few months were really difficult because I was stuck in bed and couldn't do anything," she says.

"It was pretty scary because no one could tell me when things were going to get better and it was basically just a waiting game. That was the hardest thing, not having any timeline for recovery.

"I definitely had moments when I wondered if I'd ever get back playing. When I couldn't see any improvement, I really wondered if I would ever get back."

She has returned to light training but is taking things slowly to avoid a relapse.

Thank you RS. All the very best to Maia, clearly being careful but may we see her back in competition before too long.

How horrible. Hope that she will be able to recover. So many stories are coming to light about the plight of people who are suffering from 'long covid' .
