Again, no. Studies over the past 2 decades or more have shown that static stretches do not prevent injuries and also temporarily reduce muscle performance. Both muscle strength and muscle speed can experience some reduction for 30-60 minutes or more. You can deal with your tension with dynamic stretching instead. We've had numerous discussions in this forum on this subject in the past 5 years or more.

Do you static stretches at home, before heading out to the courts. And again, afterward.
If u have one foot stuck in yesterday & one foot stuck in tomorrow, u are peeing on today.
