The field of sports nutrition is filled with myths that people follow blindly. This article looks at the top sports nutrition myths, and what science has to say about them.

Nick Bollettieri was the catalyst for the tennis academy. In the 1980s, he put together a group of boys that ultimately became the leaders of American professional tennis: Andre Agassi, Michael Chang, Jim Courier and many others. Due to his success, everyone wanted to attend a tennis academy to get to that level.
