Tennis is one of the most played sports in the world. It is a sport anyone can play, from beginners to professionals. There are two major categories of tennis players. They can be classified according to their ability to hit the ball further than a backhand or forehand. Most times, tennis players struggle with their forehands as they aren’t aware of how to properly engage the proper muscles for their forehands, and in what order to hit strong forehands. In the same way, tennis players struggle with backhands because they aren’t aware about the proper way to set themselves up to hit a great backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the game and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the mistake of holding their racket too tight or loosely and then miss the ball, making poor contact or letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will give you the best opportunity to hit the ball accurately every time.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should be straight. As you get closer to the top end of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should be curved towards your top. This is referred to as a cut shot or high arc. A hook with a low arc starts with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine the kind of shots you should be practicing. For instance, if, for example, you are practicing a technique referred to as the bank shot, your forehand’s swing path will naturally shift towards the top as you move closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball whenever you swing. This will ensure that your shoulders remain in constant contact with your ball which allows your arms to move freely. Be aware that your shoulders should never be removed from the socket or racquet while you are swinging. This can make it extremely difficult to catch the ball in the event that this occurs.
When you approach the ball, make sure that your arm is pointed from your side , not to your backside. Rotating your arm to your side can actually reduce your power and your ability generate power. To allow your arm to rotate properly you need to have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip can lead to injury. It could cause you to not to hit the ball or cause you overextend your arms. This could cause injury.
The angle of your stance is another important factor in ensuring a good grip. Most tennis beginners are right-handed and have their right arm slung across their bodies. The left arm of beginners is usually slung over their body. Most coaches suggest using a neutral grip or a style similar to a baseball posture. A neutral grip will stop you from swinging with an arm that is not dominant.
Forehand tennis players with open stances are more likely to have problems with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have issues with their grip. A great way to solve this problem is to hold the racket using an even grip. Closed grips are best for tennis players who have an open forehand. This can be accomplished by placing the racket on your head while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players with a non-dominant hand should swing the racket over their head and over their shoulders. The racket should face your crotch if left handed, and it should face your waist if you are left-handed. This will help prevent either the over-the-head swing or the under-the-shoulder swing from happening. Keep your wrists straight as you swing. Also, ensure that you don’t allow any side of your body too much room.
