RELATIONSHIP OF SELECTED PHYSIOLOGICAL VARIABLES TO SLICE SERVE IN TENNIS
Mr. Himanshu Saxena and Dr. Minakshi Pathak
The purpose of the study was to find out the relationship of the selected physiological variables to slice serve in tennis. Random sample was employed for reaching valid conclusion of the study. Thirty male tennis players of U.P. and M .P. who have participated in national level tournaments with age ranging between 18 to 23 were selected as a subject for the study. The following physiological variables were selected for the study: positive breath holding capacity, anaerobic capacity and cardiovascular endurance. Speed of the service ball was measured by speed radar gun while performing slice serve/service. The speed of slice serve was record in Km/hr. In order to find out the relationship of selected physiological variables to slice serve, Pearson product correlation was applied at 0.05 level of the significance. On the basis of research findings, the hypothesis stated earlier that there is no significant relationship of slice serve and physiological variables was accepted in the variables anaerobic capacity and cardiovascular endurance. In case of variables such as positive breath holding capacity was found significant relationship and the hypothesis was rejected at .05 level of the significance
Keywords: Speed radar gun, positive breath holding capacity and anaerobic capacity.
