Tennis Stretches
It has been widely reported that Novak Djokovic has arguably the best flexibility of any tennis player ever. He is extremely resilient to injury and his excellent flexibility is likely to be a factor in this. Not only does flexibility aid injury prevention but it helps him reach those critical shots that others can't. This has not happened by accident but instead by extremely hard work, rigorous stretching programmes and immense dedication. Below are some stretches that can help anyone playing Tennis- please begin gently and stretch carefully!

Groin stretch:  Lying on your back with heels together and legs straight. Loop an elastic resistance band around one foot and pull the leg out to the side, keeping the knee straight.
Stop when you feel a strong but comfortable stretch. Hold for 20 secs x3 on each leg.
( Do not stretch into pain and seek advice for longstanding groin pain)

Hip Flexor Stretch:  Start in a plank position-on hands and toes. Step one foot forwards, so that it is level with your hands as shown. Keep the back leg straight and the chest up. 
Stop when you feel a strong but comfortable stretch. Hold for 20 secs x3 on each leg.
( Do not stretch into pain and seek advice for longstanding groin pain)

Child's Pose: 
Sit back on your heels, with your knees apart and lower your chest to the floor. Try to maintain a neutral spine. Stretch your fingers forwards, keeping your elbows straight. Hold that position, then walk the hands to one side then the other as shown. Hold each position for 20 secs.
Stop when you feel a strong but comfortable stretch.
( Do not stretch into pain and seek advice for longstanding pain)
