Tennis players are some of the most well-known athletes, and their feet are often focused on by sports media. Tennis players’ feet don’t just have to support them as they walk up and down a court – they must also be able to move quickly for powerful serves and volleys. With all the running and jumping involved in tennis, it may come as no surprise that players often have size 14 or larger feet – in men’s tennis especially, the average player has a shoe size of about 9.5 US (almost 10) .
