The thing about tennis matches is – you never really know how long you're going to play. A match that's won 6-0, 6-0 can last 45 minutes. A match that goes to 3 sets with tiebreakers in each set can last 2 1/2 to 3 hours, maybe longer. In these marathon matches, be sure you have something to eat close by (i.e., in your well-equipped tennis bag). Whether its a banana, a granola bar or a cookie, a little snack can give you the quick physical and mental boost you need to finish out a match.
