Abstract

Purpose of review

To review the recent literature regarding the epidemiology of tennis injuries at all levels of play, and to discuss recent findings in injury surveillance by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).

Recent findings

Following the release of a consensus statement in 2009 calling for standardized documentation and analysis of tennis-related injuries, multiple studies have been published describing longitudinal injury incidences at Grand Slam tournaments and the Davis Cup. Recent efforts by the ATP have further elucidated injury patterns on tour. There have also been recent high-quality studies on injury trends among collegiate and elite junior tennis players, bringing attention to musculoskeletal injuries and systemic illnesses that young tennis players may be susceptible to.

Summary

Recent efforts in injury surveillance by the ATP and at the collegiate and junior levels have highlighted injury trends that will help guide injury prevention strategies at various levels of play.
