Wimbledon in 25 years time?

I play tennis and like to follow ATP tournaments throughout the seasons - clay, grass, hardcourt. Last year, Wimbledon had a fascinating website on what tennis will be like 25 years from now (around the time of the Singularity?) The tennis player, for example:
The major change for players, will be the ability for them to monitor their performance during a game:
Sensors will monitor muscular contractions, measuring fatigue and minimising strain on tiring muscles
Sweat levels will be monitored to gauge hydration levels and, along with heart-rate monitors provide indications of stress
This information will enable them to regulate their intake of water, supplements and of course even bananas to the exact level required to maximise their performance levels
