Tennis is among the most played sports in the world. Tennis is a game that anyone can play from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their skill to hit the ball farther and higher than a forehand or backhand. Most times, tennis players struggle when they hit forehands due to the fact that they do not know how to use the right muscles for their forehands and in what order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due to lack of knowledge on how to position themselves in order to hit a strong backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the game and need to be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the mistake of gripping the racket too tight or loose and end up hitting the ball too far or making a poor contact or having the racket break off when they swing at the ball. Holding the racket the right way will provide you with the best chance 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’s swing path should curve towards your top. This is known as a high arc or cut shot. A hook with a low arc would have an inherent wrist hinge as well as wrist extension. These factors will influence the type of shots you should be learning. For example, if you are practicing a technique referred to as the bank shot your forehand swing will naturally turn toward the top as you get closer to the ball.
Keep your shoulders in line with the ball when you swing. This will keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms swing freely. Remember that your shoulders should never leave the socket or your racquet when you swing. It could make it extremely difficult to capture the ball when this happens.
When you approach the ball, make sure that your arm is pointing towards your side, and not your backside. By putting your arm on your side can weaken your ability to generate energy and produce a strong backswing. To allow your arm to rotate correctly, you must have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip could cause injury. It could cause you to not to hit the ball or cause you overextend your arms. This can lead to injury.
The angle of your stance is another important aspect to ensure a good grip. Tennis beginners are typically right-handed and have their left hand spread across their body. For beginners, their left arm is usually slung over their body. The majority of coaches advise using a neutral grip, or a style similar to a baseball posture. A neutral grip will prevent you from swinging with an arm that isn’t dominant.
Tennis players who have open stance forehands tend to have issues with their forearms. When players with an open stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists, and they do not have a good grip. One way to address this issue is to hold the racket using an even grip. Closed grips are ideal for players with an open forehand. This can be achieved by placing the racket in front of your skull, with your knees bent, and keeping your elbows locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should hold the racket in front of their head and over their shoulders. The racket should face your crotch if you are an right-handed player and should be facing your waist if left-handed. This will prevent the over the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from happening. When you swing keep your wrists straight, and keep them down your hips, making sure you don’t allow either side of your body any space to swing.
