Don’t misunderstand me; the physical side of his game is veryimportant just as it is to many of the top tour players, but to train thenervous system (by adding balance and stabilizing challenges)alongside the muscular system is a superior form of training from botha skill enhancement and functional basis as well as being a saferenvironment for the players.After all in a multi-skilled sport like tennis the objective is to
sport performance and reduce injury potential, not build entrants forbody-building competitions. So do your strength work wisely, whichmeans as a sportsperson not a bodybuilder (there is a difference),which will leave you more time to enhance your skill development.
