I brought up impingement syndrome because some people (like me) are much more susceptible to it. It's essentially the narrowing of the space in which the rotator cuff is allowed to operate. Once you have it, it sets the stage for all kinds of chaos in the shoulder, particularly to your bursa and supraspinatus.

Don't worry, once the issue is addressed, there shouldn't be any lasting effect on your tennis game.
