Objective: This study aims to analyze the fatigue relief effect of nutritious high-protein drinks for tennis players after training. Methods: Twenty tennis players were randomly divided into two groups: group A and group B. One group took a nutritious high-protein drink, and the other group took pure water. They received two months of tennis training, and the related indexes were measured. Results: After the experiment, the movement speed of the two groups of athletes increased, the fat-free weight increased, and p < 0.05  in the comparison of group A and B; compared to before experiment, the red blood cell (RBC) and hemoglobin (Hb) of group A increased, the blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatine kinase (CK) of group B significantly increased, and the blood lactic acid (BLA) value of group A was significantly lower than that of group B after the experiment (p < 0.05). Conclusion: The intake of nutritious high-protein beverages can maintain the stability of indexes such as RBC, inhibit the production of BLA, and reduce the increase of BUN and CK, which is conducive to the relief of fatigue.
