See details: See a neurologist. The radiation therapy could have cause an injury to one of the major nerves supplying your leg.

I would also recommend you stop the tennis in the interim. If you should fall you can seriously injure yourself. If its a sensory neuropathy from the radiation I find Metanx is very helpful.
