Hydration strategies for a Tennis player- What should you be Drinking and how much?

The tennis training diet should be focused on high-energy foods and appropriate hydration, timed appropriately before and after multiple competitions. The following guidelines help develop successful nutrition and hydration practices for players. 

Beverages and foods that count toward daily water intake 

• BEST: water, fitness waters, sport beverages, club soda, mineral water, and flavored water 

• Very good: 100% fruit juices, lemonade, tomato and vegetable juices, low fat milk 

• Good: raw fruits and vegetables 

• So-so: soft drinks (diet soft drinks in moderation), decaffeinated coffee, yogurt 

• Not so helpful: caffeinated beverages (coffee, tea, soda) and alcoholic beverages act as diuretics and do not count toward water intake
