Get quicker first. Then faster. Then stronger. Then get more endurance.

It's quite easy, most people do it here. Go on youtube and watch countless hours of Federer/Nadal videos, you'll instantly improve.

Hahahaha I'm just kidding man, though it's common practice here, I wouldn't recommend it.

Your request is vague but since you posted it in the health/fitness section, I'll advise you to strength your core and lower back to prevent chronic injuries. In tennis, the lower back is likely to go before your legs give out.

Hit the ball 5 feet over the net in the middle of the court and wait for the other guy to make a mistake.

Recover as quickly as possible after every tennis shot, so you can come out of a split step just as your opponent is hitting his next shot.
We have a natural tendency to sprint after the next ball, but it takes discipline to recover after every shot so that we are balanced and ready to get to that next shot.


If you never sprint, you will never be as fast as you could be. Many practice sprinting with high intensity interval training (HIIT). http://www.intervaltraining.net/hiit.html


If you have difficulty starting fast, stopping fast, quickly changing directions, and recovery, try these on court agility drills:

(Probably my favorites are the spider drill and horizontal repeaters.)
Want to make them even more realistic for tennis? Swing at the end just before you change direction, to better practice recovering in the opposite direction after a swing.


Want to help prevent the all-too-common shoulder, elbow and wrist problems as you bash that ball over and over?
Do the thrower's ten exercises: http://www.muhlenberg.edu/pdf/main/a...throwers10.pdf


Have time off this winter? Get ready for the spring season:
Off Season Training http://www.sport-fitness-advisor.com...-training.html
You can even add in some weight training: Complete, Annual Tennis Weight Training Program http://www.sport-fitness-advisor.com...-training.html
