Thanks for your query,

Thats great to see that you are playing tennis and also very active.

For elevated blood pressure , I recommend you that you should get your blood pressure check twice daily .

Increase heart rate is due to increased blood pressure.

Meanwhile get your baseline investigation of blood and urine,
including Complete blood count, Liver funtion test and renal function tests, serum electrolytes, Blood suger level , fasting lipid profile, ECG.

Continue with your daily activities, avoid taking oily foods and salts.

Wishing you a good health.

Hope, I have answered your query. If you have any other I would be honored to reply.
