As the COVID-19 pandemic surges on, there have been no traditional professional or collegiate tennis events to enjoy. Even local tennis has been off-limits in many parts of the United States, with neighborhood courts often closed-up and locked. Only recently have certain venues figured out how to stage some exhibition-style tennis events for television viewers, with limited or no local attendees, and strict adherence to “social distancing” protocols. Entertaining and educational reading has become more important than ever as many people are limiting their social outreach as much as possible, and keeping tight to their homes in an effort to limit infection risk and spread of disease. Once again, we have attempted to provide some intriguing and stimulating tennis-science articles for your enjoyment during this curious period in human history.

Please enjoy a discussion of “backhand wrist” by Epperson et al, a comparison of general health outcomes in recreational tennis players by Tishelman et al, and a technique of tactical tennis learning presented by Alaoui et al. Hopefully these unique articles provide some distraction from our current collective health crisis, and provide a basis for some stimulating discussion amongst tennis and science professionals.
