See you on court
Harry Jameson serves up your sporting schedule for summer: anyone for tennis?
Agility can compensate for a lack of ability in tennis, so this drill will really help you on court. If you’re already technically gifted (lucky you), this will take your game to the next competitive level. Place two cones 8–10m apart (or use the court’s baseline). Start at cone one, knees bent in a braced position, shuffle laterally to the other cone as fast as you can. At cone two, drop and do 10 press-ups, spring-up then shuffle back to cone one and do 10 jump squats. Do this as many times as possible in 90secs, then rest for 1min. Aim for 6–10 sets but beware, this is tough.
My favourite tennis drill is cardio training on court. My coach feeds me balls for 1min, followed by 30secs of sprints and 1min rest. We repeat this 5–10 times. It reinforces my endurance and is a great drill for the clay season. Gaël Monfils, professional player
