wow... it seems that coconut drink are all natural n isotonic... i think protein powder don't really help a lot, as protein main job is to repair tissues. the apple juice mixed with minerals sounds interesting... will try that out.
Anyone knows what's the pros drink? i often saw on TV that they have some kind of a mixture mixed with the drinking water provided by the tournament. Often in light red or milky white. And some pro tennis players, they have their own mixtures too... any comments?

I think isotonic refers to a similar osmolarity to blood which is around 300 milliosmoles/l.
Taking too much sugar can be detrimental. I believe you'd get an insulin surge to cope with extra glucose. Then if you exercise during the higher insulin levels, blood sugar level can drop even more. Definitely glucagon levels would then increase and it gets a bit complicated from then on! We need an exercise physiologist around here
Coconut juice tastes good, whether it's good for your body during exercise, I don't know
My personal favourite is 100plus and I can drink 2litres or more in during a session.
There are lots of different formulas around - people have to try them out and see what works best for themselves as individuals.

Pineapple juice and ginger beer 50/50 mix with a lot of lime juice. I'm just a very casual player but this is delicious. I'll try that sugar/salt water mix, thanks.

Having an alcoholic drink is heavily not recommended for playing sports though. You should tell the one who intro you men..
