Yeah as a tennis player I don't bench press. You have to use very good technique - or when you go up in weight you run the chance of annihilating your shoulders..

People think everyone is the same but they can have different shoulder anatomy. So you should be careful if you do it.. Some guys do pyramids sets of benching with mediocre form no problem - other guys will just kill their shoulders.

Since chest is not that important for tennis players - but you don't want to skip it - neutral grip dumbell presses. It won't hit your chest as hard but its pretty safe.

Here is a good article if you want to train your chest and not f up your shoulders.
