Cassidy Foley Davelaar, D.O.
How long have you been involved in tennis and in what ways?
What is your current role in tennis and/or tennis medicine?
What do you find most interesting about tennis medicine?
I remember being a multisport athlete and having to choose between tennis and softball in 6th grade. I chose tennis for several reasons, but one reason was because the uniforms were more attractive. There is a lot of pressure on female athletes to look a certain way. Add to that with intense coach/player relationships and the incredible mental toll of playing an individual sport and I think female athletes’ health can be at risk.
How do you think we can improve the field of tennis medicine?
Provide a network of trained/certified dieticians, sports medicine physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, strength coaches, physical therapists and other professionals dedicated to protecting the athlete.
