I was reading the Sports pages of my newspaper this morning and they had an article about Tennis star Roger Federer who has just announced he has decided to take a break from tennis due to fatigue.
2008 was the year Roger Federer was supposed to win all grand slam tournaments but at the end he won only US Open. After winning the US open he admitted it was the only time he had felt stronger and fresher.
He then adds “I want to remain at the top of the game for many more years to come and go after the No. 1 ranking again,” he said. “In order to do that, I need to get a proper rest and get strong again so that I am 100 percent fit for the remainder of the year or next year.”
Signs and Treatment of fatigue.
The primary indicators of fatigue in athletism are reduced performance and frequent injury. Taking a rest from training is the best treatment for fatigue because it allows your muscle fibres to heal from the tears that happen during strenuous training.
