The physiological demands of tennis are difficult to analyse, because tennis is a multifaceted sport with a stop‐and‐start nature, played on different court surfaces under a variety of environmental conditions. The authors have done a good job, monitoring a multiplicity of parameters simultaneously, in order to describe the physiological responses to professional tennis. One of the most interesting findings of the study is that notational analysis is not only influenced by court surface, but also by thermoregulatory strain, which may have important implications for performance.
