    Oh God, don’t listen to the person who said bench press. Pecs are the MOST useless muscle to a tennis player. Here’s a list of muscles that tennis players need the most: Quads, Forearm, Shoulder, Core (abs, back), Calves.
    Quads- running, leg press, squats, any of that sort
    Forearm- forearm curl, reverse curl. You’ll need this muscle for topspin.
    Shoulder-barbell uprow, lateral raise (I think that’s what it’s called)
    Core- abs and back…there are countless exercises for your core online
    Calf- jumprope, exercise ladder

    Some specific exercises you should do in addition to those are…
    1. long distance running: tennis matches can last for a LONG period of time and you’ll need endurance
    2. sprinting: it’s all about sprinting in tennis
    3. acceleration training: you need to get to your top speed in as little time as you can. For this, I go on the crosscountry machine and do 48 seconds of normal pace jogging and then 12 seconds going as fast as I can.
    4. for the exercise ladder, you can ask your coach, go to some conditioning classes, or just look them up online.
