The STMS organization continues to provide opportunities in education for tennis medicine. The JMST themed issues continues and I am pleased to be a guest editor with one of the most promising younger members (and new board mem­ber) of our organization, Deb Skinstad, PhD. She will also now be the new editor-in-chief of “Inside the STMS” newsletter. The focus of this issue of the journal is the junior tennis player which involves discussions regarding attrition, coaching philosophies, and development of a junior player. STMS collaborated with the AMTA (American Medical Tennis Association) for the first North American Medical Tennis Championships November 2018 in Orlando, Florida at the United States National Training Center.

STMS has two upcoming meetings in 2019 that you should put on your calendar: March 23 –24th, 2019 Alejandro Badia and Richard Gayle will co-chair a meeting in conjunction with the Miami Open at the Hard Rock Stadium, the new host site for the tournament. Please go to for more details and registration will be starting soon. Please save the date in October (18th–19th), 2019 for the next international meeting in Stockholm, Sweden in conjunction with the ATP tournament with local and international featured speakers. The new Euro­pean regional chairperson, Fredrik Johanssen will be chairing this event that will also include collaboration with a coaching conference. I’m continually impressed by the number of people whom have contributed to STMS to make it a truly inclusive, diverse, and mission-based educational tennis medicine and science organization!

Look forward to a great 2019!

Neeru Jayanthi, MD President STMS
