 “It is fitting to focus this months issue on the female tennis athlete”.

Much attention in recent years has been given, both in research and application, to the longevity of tennis careers. Considering this, my thoughts and reflection this past month have been on the story of all-time tennis great, Kim Clijsters and her heroic comeback to professional tennis. Recognizing and appreciating the many ‘hats’ that professional tennis players wear, it is fitting to focus this month’s issue on the female tennis athlete and some of these proverbial hats that are worn and sometimes taken for granted, especially at the pinnacle of success. Aspects pertaining to overall health, well-being and longevity of the female tennis athlete will be highlighted in this month’s issue. It is my distinguished honor to introduce you to some of our new and returning contributors, namely: (1) Cassidy Foley Davelaar (STMS Member Spotlight). (2) Kayla Fujimotto Epperson gives a comprehensive report on the STMS North American Conference that took place earlier this month at Hilton Head, SC. (3) Another brilliant piece written by Kayla Fujimotto Epperson, entitled:Understanding ACWR: 6 Tips for Load Management and Injury Prevention. This article looks at some great research on the topic and it’s relevant application (4) Our friends at the WTA never cease to disappointment with another timeous piece on women’s health, entitled: Contra(mis)conception. An eye opening piece on women’s reproductive health that one can easily understand, apply and reference for years to come. Lastly, I would like to use this platform to give special mention to the many women and girls within the tennis industry across the globe. From the athlete, parent, medical practitioner, coach and little girl with a BIG sporting dream, thank you for the countless hours of sacrifice, tears, sweat and relentless grit that you bring to the sporting arena every day. Know that your pioneering work is seen, recognized and greatly appreciated, not only on the National Girls and Women in Sports Day, which we celebrated on February 5th 2020, but everyday.

Happy reading!
Yours in tennis, Deb Skinstad, MA (PhD Sport Science candidate).
