As sure as the summer brings about another Nadal-dominated French Open, we present to you our best summer edition of The Journal of Medicine and Science in Tennis (JMST). Unfortunately, this issue brings along with it some loss. Javier Maquirriain, MD, former Editor-in-Chief of JMST for many years, as well as the president of The Society of Tennis Medicine and Science (STMS) from 2011–2015, and highly published author of many pivotal “tennis medicine” related research and articles, has left us. He was beloved by his colleagues, and highly respected by his peers in tennis medicine.

The following issue is dedicated to his memory, including anecdotal commentary and tribute from some of his peers that knew him best, as well as pictoral representation of his impact, and our “original research” award winning paper, which shall be named in his honor from here forward. Please consider this edition a celebration of his life and his impact on our profession and journal.

The JMST and STMS could not have the far-reaching impact they do today if not for the shoulders of Javier Maquirriain, which helped carry us to where we stand today. I will hand this issue off to Neeru Jayanthi, MD, and current President of STMS, for his personal commentary on Javier’s contribution to our field and his friendship.
