Skipping/jumping rope is an excellent exercise for tennis. Try to stay on the balls of your feet and jump in a low quick manner in order to be "light on your feet" -- not in a hard jarring fashion. You can use this for interval training. You might skip rope continuously for ~2 minutes to get the heart rate up. Then jump for 30 seconds or so alternating with 30-60 seconds of easy walking. After a number of these you can shorten the jumping phase to 15 seconds with a 45-second walk. You can vary the intervals a bit, say high intensity for 20 seconds with a 40-second walk.
