Abstract

ABSTRACT: Understanding the total energy expenditure (TEE) for competition and training in sport are vital to ensure suitable nutritional strategies. This study assessed TEE of a world class male and female tennis player during competition at the highest level. Participants: Career high ranking, Female: Women's Tennis Association (WTA) top 10; Male: Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) top 15. Methods: Doubly labelled water assessed TEE during a 17-day period analysed by day 1-7 (P1) and 7-17 (P2) which included a WTA/ATP tournament and culminated at the Wimbledon Championships. Daily training and match loads were assessed using a 10-point Borg scale multiplied by time. Match data were provided by video analysis and player tracking technology. Results: The TEE during P1 for the female player was 3383 kcal⋅day-1 (63.5 kcal⋅kg-1) FFM with 362 points played over 241 min in three matches covering a distance of 2569 m, with an additional 875 min training. During P2, TEE was 3824 kcal⋅day-1 (71.7 kcal⋅kg-1) FFM with 706 points played over 519 min during five matches, covering a distance of 7357 m with an additional 795 min training. The TEE during P1 for the male player was 3712 kcal⋅day-1 (56.3 kcal⋅kg-1) FFM with 133 points played over 88 mins during one match covering 1125 m, with an additional 795 mins training. During P2, TEE was 5520 kcal⋅day-1 (83.7 kcal⋅kg-1) FFM with 891 points played over 734 min during five matches, covering 10043 m, with an additional 350 min training. Conclusion: This novel data positions elite tennis, played at the highest level, as a highly energetic demanding sport, highlighting that nutritional strategies should ensure sufficient energy availability during competition schedules.
