<p>    The service is the only shot in tennis that is 100% under control of the player, and the most potentially dominant shot in game. This study investigated the service speed and spin as an indicator of service performance and analyzed the correlation between service performance and physical fitness. Twenty- two male players playing at the elite level of each age in Japan, participated in this study. It was found that: <BR>1) There was a significant correlation between the speed, both 1st and 2nd services, and physical fitness, while the service spin did not correlate with physical fitness. <BR>2) Medicine ball throw, which is a test item of throwing type, was the item that we could predict the speed of the 1st service, compared to running and jumping items. <BR>3) A significant regression in speed between the 1st service speed (Y) and medicine ball throw was found [Y=1.16x+100.24; x: medicine ball throw; r =0.81; p<0.05].</p>
