Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Everyone can play tennis from beginners to the pros. Tennis players can be divided into two broad categories based on their level to hit the ball further and higher than a backhand or forehand. Most times, tennis players struggle with hitting forehands because they aren’t aware of how to use the right muscles for their forehands or in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with backhands due to the fact that they don’t know enough about how to properly position themselves for a perfect backhand on the court. Therefore, these two important areas of the game must to be addressed by those who want to be a pro at the game.
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 and making poor contact or letting their racket slide when they swing at the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will give you the best chance to strike the ball correctly every time.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s path should be straight. As you get closer to the top of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should curve towards your top. This is known as cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low angle will have a natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors can affect the type of shots you need to master. For example, if you are practicing a technique that is known as the bank shot your forehand swing path will naturally turn toward the top as you move closer to the ball.
Remember to always swing with your shoulders squared with the ball. This will keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms move freely. When you swing, your shoulders should not leave the racquet’s socket. This can make it extremely difficult to capture the ball if this occurs.
When you approach the ball, ensure that your arm is pointed from your side and not towards your backside. Rotating your arm on your side can weaken your ability to generate energy and create a great backswing. You must have a strong grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip could result in injury. It could cause you to lose the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could result in injuries.
Another important aspect in the proper grip is the angle of your stance. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their left hand draped across their body. For beginners, their left arm is typically carried across their body. The majority of coaches advise using an even grip, or a style similar to a baseball posture. The club should be held in a neutral position can aid in preventing a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Forehand tennis players with open stances are more likely to have issues with their forearms. If players have an open-stance forehand, they are more likely to turn their wrists and do not have a good grip. This issue can be resolved by using a neutral grip. Tennis players with open stance forehand should attempt to hold the racket with a closed grip. This can be done by putting the racket behind your head while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players who have a non-dominant hand should hold the racket above their head and over their shoulders. If you’re a left handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should face towards your waist. This will stop the over-the head swing and the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing, keep your wrists straight and down your hips, making sure you do not give either side of your body a chance to swing.
