Tennis elbow not new among cricketers, say experts

Tennis elbow has been enjoying the spot light following ace cricketer Sachin Tendulkar's and several other players complaining about the condition. However, the condition is not uncommon in the sports arena//.

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis as it is called in medical parlance, is an affliction where the outer part of the elbow becomes painful and tender, usually as a result of a specific strain, overuse or a direct bang.
