Common Tennis Injuries. 1. Tennis Elbow. Lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow, refers to the inflammation of the tendons joining the forearm muscles to the outside of the elbow. This condition is similar to golfer’s elbow, but it occurs on the outside of the elbow rather than the inside. Tennis elbow is often the result of overuse, and while it can occur in non-athletes, it is common among athletes who play tennis and other racquet sports.

Here is a basic summary of the medical time-out (MTO) rules from one of my previous blog posts. The rule is that a player can not receive treatment for loss of conditioning/fitness or fatigue. Loss of conditioning basically means tiredness, cramping, sore muscles, and so on.
The proposal is that if a player is for some reason forced to take a medical time-out of whatever length, he will automatically, and knowingly, forfeit whichever number of points would have been played according to the normal run of play, at 25 seconds per point, 90 seconds per change-over and 120 seconds between sets.
Simply change the rules so that medical timeouts are only allowed before the injured players’ serve. If the injured player cannot wait that long, they must retire. It’s that simple.
