Dr. Jaime Fernandez-Fernandez
Professor at the Faculty of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences (University of Leon, Spain) and Strength and Conditioning Coach
I’ve been working as sport scientist and strength and conditioning coach specifically in tennis for more than 15 years, beginning with young players and continuing with juniors and professionals (i.e.,ATP/WTA) players. Recently, I’ve been combining my academic role as assistant professor at different universities (Spain, Germany) and working as scientific consultant for high performance tennis players in different countries, providing support (i.e., recovery strategies, injury prevention) for professional teams (i.e., Davis Cup, Fed-Cup, Junior Davis cup).
For many years I’ve tried to integrate the use of HIIT in tennis, not only through my practical experience with players, but also through applied research.
