As another exciting summer of tennis begins, we hope to bring you another exciting issue of The Journal of Medicine and Science in Tennis for some “between-matches” reading material. As June brought another demonstration of Rafa Nadal’s gritty dominance on the red clay at Roland Garros, we all look forward to the beautiful elegance of the grass court season and Wimbledon to come in July. Just as the stark contrast of the clay court season and the grass court season lay before us, we have tried to fill this issue with variety and contrast to suit all interests.

In Barnett et al, we examine enjoyment in youth tennis camps, while Maquirriain studies “home court advantage” as it relates to Davis Cup and The Fed Cup. Also, as we have done in our past issues, we have included several of the research abstracts from our 15th Annual Society of Tennis Medicine and Science World Congress for some insight into upcoming areas of interest in tennis and research.

Finally, as always, we encourage new and original submissions for our journal. You, the readers and researchers, are the ones that keep this journal alive and exciting! We have rolling submission deadlines so any article sent in at any time will be peer reviewed for possible inclusion. Those submissions can be sent directly to me at michaeljgriesser@ As always, please check out the President’s Message that follows from Dr. Neeru Jayanthi, to find out the latest and greatest information and news from the Society of Tennis Medicine and Science!

Enjoy the summer, and enjoy the tennis!
