Try these three exercises to improve your fitness level for tennis. Run the lines - Place 5 tennis balls at the base of the net. Place your racquet on the ground covering the baseline. Start at the baseline and sprint to the net. Retrieve one ball, sprint back to the baseline, and place the ball on your racquet. Repeat this process until all 5 tennis balls are on your racquet. Side Shuffle - Stand on the baseline and turn your body at a right angle to the net. Side shuffle up to the net, touch the net, and return back to the baseline. Do this five times in a row. Keep your knees bent when you side shuffle. Quick Jumps - Place your racquet on the ground with your feet next to the base of your tennis grip. Jump across your racquet grip as quick as you can. Do this 15-20 times. Try these drills to improve your endurance, muscles, and fitness for tennis.

Table tennis. of course, i play it but i used to play tennis. Table tennis is more technical with spin and requires less athletic and fitness. Tennis is mostly about hitting the ball as hard as you can until one gets tired I totally agree. Table tennis is an ace sport and more girls should play it. I used to play tennis too but found it quite boring but i love table tennis and it is my main sport!

With scissors or you could use an electronic drill. Others use a knife. Drills work the best.

The components of tennis required are aerobic fitness, flexibilty, strength and power, speed, agility and low body fat. Aerobic fitness and flexibility are needed for the specific movements that tennis requires. Strength and power are important for the intense physical demand of the sport. Agility and low body fat are vital for easy movement around the court and for the ability to change direction quickly.
