The Demands of a Single Elimination Collegiate Tennis Tournament
Despite the considerable body of literature describing the demands of tennis, little is known about the accumulated physiological and mechanical loads associated with collegiate tennis tournament play. While microsensors have been used extensively to quantify demands in a variety of sports, particularly accelerometry and GPS sensors, limited data exists describing the demands of tennis match play using such microsensors (1,2).
Aim. The purpose of this study was to use heart rate sensors and triaxial accelerometers to investigate the physiological and mechanical loads associated singles and doubles' tennis play during a single elimination collegiate tennis tournament.
