I need some good exercises for tennis players?

Help. I am an amateur Tennis player. I need some workouts (and need to know what I should workout, lol.) Thank you so much!
Clydesdale, dear, I play football, soccer, basketball, and swim. What other real sports exist?

    I played tennis in college and I found the following things to be the best exercises I could do (assuming you are doing these by yourself):
    Suicides. These mirror the movements you will be doing during a match, lots of side to side movements with quick bursts.

    I also used to do a lot of straight sprints. I found a straight area or area with many tennis courts in a row and would sprint one court, walk one court, sprint two courts, walk one court, ect. This builds up the quick burst movement required for returns, approaches, ect.

    I also like doing jump rope, and other jumping exercises (net jumps back and forth or something shorter if thats too high). Hitting volleys against a wall is good for control and eye hand coordination.

    Hopefully these are helpful to you and good luck.

    get you an old broom stick, break off the broom or mop and tie one milk jug full of water on each end……roll this stick up and down in your hands….this will strengthen your forearms and your grip…….get you a piece of plywood….angle it and hit the ball into it…..or if you want a straight on shot….set it flat up against something….or you could use a wall…….hope this helps, i know it helped me..oh and never forget to stretch….write if ya wanna know more

    sprints would be good (including picking up tennis balls (off the ground))

    Lifting light weights and doing high repetitions would probably serve you well.

    Main thing is to perform exercises that will keep you flexible.

    good luck!

    a jump rope will really help with footwork, which is a huge part of the game.
