Also any specific Core workout you recommend with medicine ball ?
I'm not a fitness trainer so I steer clear of giving specific advice here. I'm sure you can find some stuff on Youtube. But what I can say is that core strength is HUGE for tennis. I do Pilates three times a week and the core strength and flexibility it has given me has improved not only my tennis, but my life in general.

General advice - keep doing it =)

(Speaking of Pilates, it was recommended to me by Mike Bryan. Congrats to the Bryan Bros! Just won the US Open doubles title!)
