Some tennis players play tennis to become fit while they are having fun. Others have more or less serious goals, playing in the USTA leagues, tournaments, or other competitive ventures. What all of them have in common is that they all need to improve their tennis fitness FIRST to play their best tennis. Even if you just play for fun or to become fit.
If you are not enough fit, you will create imbalances in your body. That will eventually stop you from having fun, cause aches, and eventually more serious problems. You don’t even want to get to that stage.
The older you are, the more imbalances and “issues” you have accumulated in your body. Just stop for a moment and look around. Especially watch players who are 50+ years. They all have wrapped knees, ankles, or elbows. They don’t move too smoothly. If you are still younger than the senior player, you goals should be to never become like this.
If you are the “senior with issues”, it’s not too late for you either. It just takes more time, effort, focus, and discipline. But any player, at any age can make the body stronger, fitter, and more balanced.
