Sažetak
The aim of the study was to determine the eventual relation of results obtained in standard testing protocols used in tennis to current ranking of elite tennis players as well as on maximal serve velocity. Twenty Croatian national and international male elite tennis players were ranked according to the ATP and National ranking order at the end of the season and underwent a laboratory exercise testing procedure, which encompassed measurements of morphological, motor and functional characteristics and abilities. The insight into relation of the measured abilities to an overall ranking was obtained by multiple regression analysis. Neither the model nor any single variable proved to be significant in predicting the ranking of Croatian elite tennis players or maximal service speed. Very good results in the tests of aerobic capacity, strength and coordination probably contributed to the lack of significant correlation between the proposed model and the ranking of players because all subjects were well prepared from physical fitness point of view. Also, the sample comprised only top-level athletes among whom the ranking is probably influenced by slight differences in tennis technique and, of course, psychological factors.
