View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Objective: The primary aims of this retrospective study were to describe the burden of injury presenting to the medical team and the changes in injury profile over 10 years (2003–2012) at The Championships, Wimbledon. Secondary aims included description of gender difference in rates, distribution and pathology of injuries.

Design: Retrospective observational cohort of player injury presentations over 10 years (2003–2012) at The Championships, Wimbledon.

Results: The overall rate of presentation of injury for all players over the 10-year period was 20.7 per 1000 sets played. Injury rates were lower for male players (17.7 injuries per 1000 sets played) than female players (23.4 injuries per 1000 sets played). There was variability in the numbers of injuries reported by men and women players over the 10-year period.

Conclusions: The rates of presentation of injury at this Grand Slam tennis tournament varied between male and female players, and between years. More robust systems of data collection are required in professional tennis to enable more sophisticated injury data analysis between sexes, years and different playing surfaces.

BJSPORTS2015095552F4: Injury classification by type of injury: 2007–2012.

Mentions: A further subclassification of the timing of onset of injury was used over these 6 years (figure 4). Thirty-nine per cent of injuries were acute new presentations occurring during The Championships, while 34% presentations related to acute traumatic injuries that had been sustained elsewhere prior to The Championships (acute-prior). Sixteen per cent of presentations were pre-existing chronic in nature and a further 11% injuries had occurred within 8 weeks of recovery from a similar injury to same site and were classified as recurrent injury.
