Yes Chemist, I think tennis and basketball are a nice combination. John Lucas was an all american in both tennis and basketball back in the 1970's, before going on to a long NBA career. Of course our situation is probably unique, in that my son is playing as much tennis this winter as any of his competitors. Having access to indoor courts, and me as his training partner, he is getting in 5 days per week of hard tennis work, along with all the basketball. Over training can be a risk, as he has had some stress injuries we have to watch for. But it is a nice combination, and it works for him.
