ByO. GIRARD, R. CHEVALIER, F. LEVEQUE, J.-P. MICALLEF AND G.P. MILLET

Aerobic fitness is important for tennis players which enables them to generate power repeatedly for explosive stroke production and rapid court movements during extended matches (Lees, 2003). Currently a variety of test procedures are used to evaluate the exercise capacity of tennis players and prescribe the appropriate on-court training intensity. This evaluation involves laboratory and field tests.
