Performance nutrition and appropriate recovery are important components of success for the tennis professional. While there is limited tennis-specific scientific information, there is an increasing amount of research that is relevant. Although it is difficult to investigate the effects of nutrition during a match, nutritional strategies are gleaned from direct investigations of dietary components and simulations of play.
The development of a nutrition plan, including fluid balance, and consideration of how this may differ across the development pathway are obviously integral to successful performance. The roles of sleeping, eating, and other techniques in recovery are also taken into consideration as part of the broad training plan for all tennis players.
