Research Review: Tennis


We’re back from a little hiatus. I don’t know about you, but it’s been a super busy fall with sports injuries. I’ve seen some pretty weird injuries this fall and saw a surge in some injuries in my office, such as ACL tears. And it just seems like overall there’s been a lot going on in general. Plus it doesn’t help for a podcast host to get parainfluenza and get laryngitis.

But with all that aside, I’m happy to bring you a new episode today with a previous guest as we review some recent research in the world of tennis. So let’s dive in as I try to keep up volleying back and forth with my guest as we tackle tennis research.
