It’s been a long time since I’ve been playing on the court and it’s just my second game since the first window,” he said. “It was all about trusting my injury. I left it alone and said forget it.

It’s a rhythm thing, I’m starting to get my rhythm back, starting to get my legs back,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbedlast_img
