I of course was trying to make a joke. On a more serious note and others will tell you, playing back to back days is not great idea long term. Unlike walking, swimming and cross country skiing, tennis is very hard on your body and does damage to your body every time out. With any court based sport, to perform at a high level you have to be willing put your joints at risk along with other key body parts. While there is some great advice in this thread. on how to recover (if you do indeed need to play the next day), the best way to recover is to rest. BTW... you should not be using tennis to get into shape, you should be in tennis shape before you hit the courts.
