How to train best for tennis performance?

Over a series of reviews, I will try to dig dip and provide you with practical takeaways in terms of physiology and the demands of a certain sport. First up is tennis. We will have a look over elite-level male and female tennis as well as how demands change when we analyze lower levels of play. Tennis is a sport based on unpredictability. The unpredictability of point length, shot selection, strategy, match duration, weather, and the opponent all influence the complex physiological aspects of tennis play.

New idea for measurement, the logic behind, and the improvement of ”Standard model” written by Nimphius et al (2016)

*Originally written for ComplementaryTraining.net blog – Is a COD Deficit Really a Deficit?

Before going down the rabbit hole I highly recommend you reading the article from Sophia Nimphius and her colleagues (2016): Change of direction deficit: A more isolated measure of change of direction performance than total 505 time. It represents a base of my idea written below. Further down I named their model a “Standard model”. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are not interested in a construct and details, just skip to the “Simple instructions and equation” part.
