Tennis players have a variety of equipment choices that interact with biomechanical factors to influence risk of overuse injuries. Immediate loading on the upper extremity is influenced by player strokes and properties of racquets, strings, and the ball. Lower extremity loading depends on the interaction of the players’ shoes and court surface. Most of the research in these areas are retrospective or modelling studies that point to the likely long-term effects of changes in equipment on player risk of injury. Few prospective studies have been conducted to confirm these hypotheses.
