In brief: Minimize sxs

If you really have osteoarthritis, then you can only minimize symptoms, but over time they will worsen.
The symptomatic treatments involve medications and joint injections. Work with sports medicine or ortho to establish a treatment and monitoring plan. You can keep playing tennis, just realize that you may have to have a knee replacement down the road.
