Abstract

The goal of analyzing the loads associated with tennis stroke production is optimizing tennis performance, while at the same time minimizing the risk of injury. Thus, important issues may include: how the power of a stroke is produced; how the loads are generated and transmitted and how improper techniques would increase the risk of injury. These issues are discussed with particular reference to the tennis backhand and tennis elbow.
