Shoulder pain among overhead-sport athletes is common and often presents a challenge to clinicians in making an accurate diagnosis. A case report of a young college tennis player is presented, with emphasis on the clinical examination process leading to the diagnosis of a superior labrum anteroposterior lesion. The current literature regarding the clinical diagnosis of glenoid labrum lesion in the shoulder with respect to specific clinical tests was reviewed. It is recommended that clinicians consider glenoid labral lesions in the context of shoulder instability. Glenohumeral internal-rotation deficit should be routinely evaluated and corrected in high-performance tennis players.
