Did you know that research shows soccer drills help tennis players? They help increase footwork speed and skill, as well as increasing skill in tracking the ball. For proof, look no further than the greatest Tennis players today.
The Big Three: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, the 3 most successful men's singles players of all time, all grew up playing soccer!
“Tennis may seem completely different from soccer but the two sports cross over very well. The speed and quickness you develop as a soccer player is extremely useful in tennis. Not only that, but soccer is even played by professional players to help increase the endurance of their legs. Both sports require a player to anticipate and read their opponents.”
“If you really want to improve your tennis game, start working on your footwork. This will improve your speed and fitness at the same time, and you'll become a better player almost immediately. Improving your footwork will also develop your agility, coordination, and balance, which is extremely important for higher levels of play.”
Playing soccer helps young athletes develop their footwork, which tennis players need to dominate the court. In tennis, much like in soccer, high-level players must be masters of agility, coordination, and balance—all of which come from nimble footwork.
