Sports which can help you with your game

If you play any other sports than tennis, which sports do you think are helpful to improve your tennis?
I don't play golf but it seems to have quite a lot in common with tennis as the mental plays a big part in it.
I think ping pong or table tennis may help technique and strategy wise as it's similar to tennis in my opinion.
I don't think playing badminton is of much help though if you're working on your overheads, it may help.
What about team sports such as baseball, football, cricket?
Do they have any aspect that may lead to the improvement of your game?

dancing----vital for your footwork/movement
100 m dash ---- speed
10,000 m ------ endurance

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

any sport where you throw a ball.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "
