Some common injuries affecting professional tennis players include stress fractures of the back, sprained ankles, disc injuries, back sprains, calf strains, tennis elbow, and shoulder tendinitis.

How to Prevent Tennis Injuries

Tennis injuries can be caused by a number of reasons, such as playing with bad form or posture, not warming up and cooling down correctly, insufficient rest, or playing with a previous injury. However, with proper care, tennis injuries can be prevented.

Some key points to remember in this regard include:

  • Wearing the correct shoes that provide comfort and appropriate support while running
  • Using the right equipment and holding your racquet firmly and properly
  • Adequately warming up and cooling down
