The chapter is written from the perspective of three sport and exercise medicine physicians who have covered tennis events for 20 years including Wimbledon, Davis Cup, ATP World Tour Finals and Olympic Games. It covers what is expected of tournament physicians before, during and after events. It also addresses specific considerations of injury management in competition. The aim is to provide a practical resource for tournament medical staff.
