hmmm really very tough question. I will go for E. At end of sentence we see "such athletes must display great endurance and strength", so I believe 'such athletes' must have some logical reference. choice B has odd 'construction necessary of', so I will mark that as incorrect. In choice D 'one' is singular whereas such athletes at end of sentence is plural. Finally only option E looks good. What is the OA ?

we need 'tennis players' in the beginning of the sentence.

Only B or E has it. 'for tennis players' makes more sense than 'of tennis players'. Hence, E.

I will also go with E here.

It is a tough one. The non-underlined part (such atheletes ....) gave some clues.

not only to complete but also to win
of tennis players not only completing but also winning
for not only the completing but also winning of
for one not only to complete but also to win
for tennis players not only to complete but also to win

IMO - E

Due to the lengthy amount of time necessary FILL IN THE ANSWER CHOICES a tournament match in professional men's tennis, [strike]a sport known for lengthy volleys and service games,[/strike]such athletes must display great endurance and strength.

Based on the meaning athletes should come in the 1st part of the sentence -
Due to the lengthy amount of time necessary FILL IN THE ANSWER CHOICES a tournament match in professional men's tennis

This narrows down to B, E
B - "time of tennis players" wrong idiomatically , not only completing but also winning is wrong form of ING to be used in the context of the sentence
E - "time for tennis players" and "NOT ONLY ... BUT ALSO" idiomatically correct

So OA should be E

+1 E

"such" needs to refer to a previous noun. In this case, tennis players
