What is a proper warm-up before a tennis match? It is very personal what you like, but you should really take your time to prepare the body and mind to perform well during the match. You want to loosen up your body, increase the heart rate and get all the muscles warm and joints lubricated. Your pre-match warm up can last from 15-30 minutes. The “warm-up” time that you spend on the court prior the match should be used to fine tune your timing, analyze your opponent and get used to the conditions of the court and surroundings. The real warm-up should happen long before stepping up on the court. The beginning of your dynamic warm-up should activate many muscles and turn on your mind. Some exercises should challenge the small stabilizer muscles and balance. You must think and concentrate to coordinate your body. Work through the whole body until all muscle groups are targeted, warm and ready to perform.
