If it is true that games are won on the field, it is equally true that it is the best approach to the meeting, the more likely that the efficiency of tennis player in the race are affected positively.

The physical training

We learn to get warm

Many times you will see players start the match and losing the first game because they do not sufficiently “hot” to give from the first point hundred percent.

It is wrong, in any way diminish the importance of the first game of the meeting “so the match is just beginning” considering it almost an extension of the heating or even a moment to strike blows against them.

At the beginning of a game “given” it may not seem too important, but may in fact cost us the loss of the set.

In some situations (e.g. Match played on fast, opponent’s mental fragility) a break in the opening game can be decisive outcome final of the competition in that it can move in a positive or in a negative psychological and tactical balance of the meeting.

If the tournament organization allows it, the ideal would warm up on the pitch before the match.

The professionals before entering the field, dribbled, play points and virtually repass the gameplan for a period ranging from a minimum of thirty minutes to a maximum of a game now.

Whereas in smaller tournaments the organization can hardly afford (especially during the dispute of the early rounds) to reserve a the field for workouts should move towards alternative heating methods.

It takes 10 minutes of jogging

When the weather permits and if the club where the tournament takes place with a green area, or if no space available even on

Tennis Court, 5-10 minutes of slow run followed by some gaits are sufficient to kick-start the body. The most common gaits

They are: race kicked back, sideways movement with the face turned towards the field and outside and skip or running high knees.

If heating operation is performed around the perimeter of the tennis court, after a few minutes of continuous running, you can switch to creep speed made on the two short sides of the field, gaits described above to be done on the two long sides.

If it’s cold outside the circle all the fields are committed to the tournament, the last player of the foresight of the resource is jumping the rope. The validity of this small tool lies in the fact that at the same time “warms up” the upper limbs and the lower ones and operates a

Organic conditioning for the overall effect.

Do not forget Stretching

Run some little stretching exercises before the race is very important.

Often before an important match nervous tension is so high as to be transmitted to our muscles, limiting the ability of moving and damaging the sensitivity of the arm-racket and general muscle looseness, basic features to express achieve their full potential.

Stretching is synonymous with relaxation, so it is recommended to perform the exercises in a quiet place, in the gym of the club. The moment stretching is closely linked to that of the encounter mental preparation.

During allurement we need to increase the concentration by focusing our attention to tactical time going over the meeting intentions and targets that we expect to achieve during the match.

Stretching exercises should involve all major muscle groups used by tennis: the arm muscles (biceps and brachial triceps), the deltoid and articulation shoulder, pectoral muscles, the upper and lower back muscles, glutes, muscles hamstring.

(The hamstring muscles are located in the back of the thigh and connects the pelvis to the leg. Their extension is crucial in all sports involving the use of the lower limbs), the femoral quadriceps (front leg) muscles and the twins (or calves). Every muscle district must be stressed gradually (gradually increasing allurement muscle up to achieving optimum voltage) and starting from the upper limbs or ending with the lower ones or vice versa.
