Pain in knee. Why is it getting harder to bend?

I have pain in the back of my knees ,and it has been getting harder to bend them and walk up and down stairs. I also often get stiff legs when I sit for a period of time. I walk and play tennis 4-5 times a week, 1 hour or more. I am on my feet nearly all day. Resting seems to have little effect and at times makes it worse.

according to symotoms stated by you, i would request you to meet an orthopeadician for an mri or xray examination. there can be many reason like hematoma, blood compromise or synivial joint swelling. to confirm any such sort of diagnosis and right line of treatment better you visit your GP or orthopediacian ASAP
