Basketball is the best workout to improve for tennis - it gets you in shape, creates explosive movement, and makes your footwork quick. I played far more basketball than tennis growing up and was always extremely fast around the court UNTIL I tore my ACL taking a charge - and the opponent just went right through my knee. So there is a good and bad to it. It was worth it for the 25 years I did play basketball.
