    Wow, I've read all the suggestions with interest and they are all excellent. However, I would like to offer another suggestion.

    Throughout my playing years, I find that proper breathing and relaxation helps (in addition to fitness). I can be very fit but without proper breathing and relaxation, I find that I tire faster than anticipated. Thus my stamina diminish much sooner and my playing quality suffers.

    Building relaxation is easier said than done. I find that relaxation comes naturally after playing many high-stress tournaments. That is just me. Different player will find other ways to achieve relaxation. Other player may find 'confidence' is the key to relaxation. So on and so forth.

    Good luck!

    I wouldn`t suggest using ankle weights for doing on court work - if you`re trying to add more weight to your body better to have it on your upper body and let the legs carry that extra load rather than have the weights on the legs themselves which could easily cause ankle and lower leg injuries. I also think it would hinder proper footwork technique.

    You need to do some exercise and also more practice to improve your fitness and stamina for your your game. Do cardio exercise at least 30 minutes a day and also do yoga workout to enhance your body balance and stamina for the doubles.

    Jog around the court. Increasing the laps per day/visit last 3 laps do a full sprint. Swing or add weight on rackets, add some muscle and strength on your wrist. Your wrist and your legs should be your target.
