    I do plenty of physical activity in a week:
    1) 2-3 3 mi runs with sprints, shuffles, karoka steps, backwards running built in
    2) 30-45 min of cone drills with 5 lb weights on each leg 2 twice week
    3) usually get in 4-6 sets of singles
    4) usually get in 4-6 sets of doubles
    5) upper body strength 1 day a week
    6) lower body strength 1 day a week

    just looking for something to help with flexibility/balance

    I am not joking with the following..

    Ice skating will vastly improve your balance on the tennis courts. Especially learning to balance for long periods of time on the ice (rotating between legs). Everyone has a dominant side and being able to push yourself to become very balanced on the ice is not easy.

    Rollerblading will work as well.

    Learn to skate for 30+ seconds on one leg and then switch to the other leg. Start slow.. 3 seconds.. and keep moving your way up until you can do this for at least 30 seconds. Doing this at a decent speed requires serious core balance. The next step would be to make S turns on one leg for 30+ seconds at a decent speed.

    Flexibility is too broad of a topic as there are various parts of the body that can require flexibility training so we would need to pick some specific areas. Let me know if I should continue..
