Part 3 – Cycling to Tennis – The Attack – More about Tennis Fitness

Hello Everyone,

Hope all are staying warm and fit as the tennis season is put on whole for the next couple of weeks. All of the pros are diligently working hard on the court and even harder off it.  Many of them see this as a new opportunity to up their levels of fitness and start the year ahead of the rest.

Americans Amer Delic, James Blake, Alex Kuznetsov and Brendan Evans are all hard at work in Tampa, Fl. Robert Kendrick is in Orlando working the 2 on 1′s, and Sam Querry and Robby Ginepri are hard at work on the West Coast.

Part 3 – Cycling to Tennis – The Attack – More about Tennis Fitness

In a bike race if you want to be a contender, you need to be at the front of the pack and ready for a rider, or a group of riders to make a getaway from the rest. This is known as a break away.  In order to break away from the pack, the cyclist needs to “time” his attack, when the peloton (a large group of riders) is either sleeping or is at a vulnerable position.

In a tennis point, there is a moment where your opponent will be most vulnerable to an attack at the net.  If the tennis player knows how to make the transition to the net in a quick, clean, and complete manner, he very often will have the opportunity to win the point by hitting a volley or an overhead for a winner.

So, as you can see, both sports have the element of “The Attack”.  So many times when I have watched the pros play, it is easy to see when, in my eyes, he has lost the point because he did not take advantage of the first moment of vulnerability of his opponent.  In the pros, you get one shot generally to win the point. If you don’t take it, your opponent very often will get the next opportunity and most likely will seize the offensive moment.

Both Cycling and Tennis have elements of strategical offense that can be intuitively developed over the years.  This is what I call the 8th Sense.  The high level Jeti’s , like Roger Federer, and cyclist Jonas Carney, have, that many people lack.  Being able to know what options your opponent has on a particular shot can win you more points each set and game you play.

If you tennis fitness is lacking, you will have a hard time executing the play. Work hard off the court like the top Americans are doing now!

    This seems strange as Amer Delic has been in Australia playing in the Brisbane International for about a week now.
    His performance here has been nothing short of amazing having beaten 87th ranking Aussie Chris Gaucione 6-4 7-5. then stunned Mario Ancic by going into tie breakers and loosing to the worlds 36 ranked player after a brilliant game,7-6{2} 6-7 [4] 7/6[6]
