<p>I've played years of tennis and I can confirm that they are very hard on your knees. You constantly turn on a dime, twisting around to go in the completely opposite direction. I don't know what kind of shoes are required to give your knees good support in that scenario. The ones I have keep me from slipping (which is always a good way to avoid injury!) but I don't know if having such good grip is actually worse on your knees since it allows you to stop and turn more suddenly. Anyone know more?</p>

<p>It's odd, but I think tennis is actually one of the roughest sports for your lower body. Tennis elbow is common and dislocated shoulders are definitely a danger, but the lateral movements of running side to side puts your knees at serious risk.</p>
<p>Are tennis shoes actually designed to provide proper support, or are they just thin shoes designed to give you good grip on the court?</p>
