The Fitness of the Italian Players

I noticed how FIT all of them are:
Schiavone
Errani
Vinci
Tarbin
Farina Elia
Pennetta

Is it something in their training, their diet....they all seem to have low percentages of body fat. I compare them to tennis players from Russia or the US where the girls seem to be fuller in size. Just a thought...

Re: The Fitness of the Italian Players

Good genes plus good training perhaps?..surprisingly though most of them are quite late bloomers. So experience might be one of the factors. Their games quite rely on fitness too, plus being raised as a clay-courter gives that benefit of knowing how to move around the court. I bet all these together make them very good players with good fitness.

Anyway, it seems the latest generation of Italian is looking to change the tradition of game-style a la Camille Giorgi.

Re: The Fitness of the Italian Players

Yes, they are physically fit.

At the same time, they often run out of has despite their trimmed look.

what are you smoking? Sugarpova, Kiri, Nadia, Makarova, Vera, King are in great shape. Serena, Sloane are in super great shape. Schiavone is like Venus too old to be in great shape longer than 5 min a year.
