well for one, you should eat A LOT of meat and vegetables ( and no, don’t have your veggies batterred in cheese lol)

Learn to cook yourself ,and most importantly eat healthy foods (don’t forget your Fruits!)

As a professional, you would have to train daily, but don’t overdo it if you’re a beginner. Start slow, maybe 30minutes-1hour? (I’m not sure with tennis lol), and then build up until you can do at least 2 hours a day (I think)

    I often train my fitness with a friend and we do different types of exercises.

    You should try eating meals that are healthy. If you are hungry before exercising, eat foods with carbs to fuel up your muscles. After exercising, eat foods with protein to build muscle.

    1. Agility ladder(Flat ladder) & cone
    Lay the ladder down so the middle of the ladder touches the middle of the baseline(the service line) on a tennis court so it looks like a cross. Step in and out of the ladder. After you make it through the ladder, sprint to the middle of the net and easily jog back to the beginning of the ladder and continue to do the samething 2 – 3 times. You can do a lot with a ladder. You can step in sideways, hop, quick feet from side to side.(This is hard to explain but I’ll try me best: In front of the ladder, put out your right foot and step to the RIGHT of the first slot but outside the ladder. Next, step inside the first slot with your LEFT foot. Bring in your RIGHT foot so your left and right foot are now in the first slot. Then, being your LEFT foot OUT to the left of the ladder next to the first slot. Now bring up your right foot and land it IN the 2nd slot of the ladder.. then bring your LEFT foot in the 2nd slot and take out your RIGHT foot and land it outside to the right of the ladder. Keep repeating until you reach the top.) Stay on your tippy toes!

    2. 4 Cone drill
    Place a cone down. Place another cone just about 3 1/2 ft. diagonally left to the first cone, then another cone 3 1/2 ft. diagonally right to the 2nd cone, and a cone 3 1/2 ft. left diagonally to the 3rd cone. Do side skips around cones and/or sprint from cone to cone about 3 – 4 times.

    3. Lines
    Start from the outside of the doubles line on the tennis court, run to the other end of the tennis court, touch the line, run back to where you started, run to the outside singles line(before the outside doubles line) touch the line, run back to where you started, run to the line in the middle of the court, touch it, and run back.

    These drills should work your legs. With strong legs, you can do a lot of things. You can use your legs by hitting loads of top spin which can help a lot.

    You should do this at least 1 – 2 hours. You can also ride on a stationary bike at a gym and 30 sec. – 1 min. planks to improve your core.

    I exercise about 3 – 4 hours 4 days a week.

    DON’T FORGET TO STRETCH AND STAY HYDRATED!!! Drinks fluids like water and gatorade.

    Hope this helped! Good luck!
