Tennis is a very popular sport. It is a sport everyone can play, from beginners to professional. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball farther and higher than a backhand or forehand. Most often, tennis players struggle when they hit forehands due to the fact that they don’t know how to use the right muscles for their forehands and in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Tennis players also struggle with their backhands because of insufficient knowledge about how to properly position themselves to hit a strong backhand down the court. These two areas are essential to the game and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the error of holding their racket in a way that is too loose or tight and then miss the ball, making poor contact or having their racket slip when they swing at the ball. The best method to hit the ball correctly is to keep the racket in the correct position.
The other important factor to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should start out straight and then curve towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow through. This is referred to as a high arc or cut shot. A hook with a low arc would start out with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine the kind of shots you should be practicing. If you are working on the bank shot technique, your forehand swing path will naturally curve toward the top as you get closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball as you swing. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms are free to move. When you swing, your shoulders must not be able to leave the socket of your racquet. If this happens, it can be extremely difficult to capture the ball.
When you are approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is pointing from your side , not your backside. The arm that is rotated on your side can weaken the ability of your arm to generate power and generate a good backswing. In order to get your arm to move properly, you must hold a firm grip on the club. A weak grip could be dangerous since it can cause you lose the ball or can cause you to overextend your arm. This could cause injuries.
Another key factor in the correct grip is the angle of your stance. Most tennis beginners are right handed and have their right arm slung across their bodies. The left arm of beginners is often slung across their body. The majority of coaches suggest that you hold the club with the neutral grip or similar to a baseball posture. A neutral grip will stop you from swinging with an arm that isn’t dominant.
Tennis players that have an open stance forehands tend to have issues with their forearms. When players with an open stance forehand they tend to twist their wrists and do not have a proper grip. This problem can be solved by holding the racket with neutral grip. Closed grips are the best choice for tennis players with 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 who have a non-dominant hand should move the racket in front of their head and over their shoulders. If you’re a right handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will prevent the over-the head swing and the under-the shoulder swing from happening. When you swing keep your wrists straight and lower your hips so that you don’t allow either side of your body any space to swing.
