Tennis is one of the most loved sports played in the world. Everyone can play tennis, from beginners to the pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their ability to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or backhand. Most times, tennis players struggle with their forehands as they don’t know how to use the right muscles for their forehands or in what order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due insufficient knowledge about how to position themselves to hit a strong backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the sport and must be addressed.
The grip is the most critical aspect of a successful tennis swing. Many beginners make the mistake of holding the racket too tightly or loosely and end up missing the ball, making improper contact, or even having the racket fall off when they swing at the ball. The right way to hold the racket in the right way will give you the best opportunity to hit the ball accurately every time.
The other thing you need to remember is that your forehand’s swing path should be straight from the beginning and then curve upwards towards the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow through. This is called cut or high arc shot. A low arc or hook will begin with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will affect the type of shots that you must be learning. If you are working on the bank shot technique, your forehand swing path will naturally curve toward the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Keep your shoulders in line with the ball when you swing. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms move freely. While you move your arms, your shoulders should not move away from the racquet’s socket. This can make it extremely difficult to take the ball back if this occurs.
When approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is pointing from your side and not to your backside. Rotating your arm to the side will weaken the ability of your arm to generate power and generate a good backswing. To get your arm to rotate correctly it is essential to be able to grip the club. Having a weak grip can be dangerous since it can cause you miss the ball or it could cause you to extend your arm. This can result in injuries.
Another important aspect in the correct grip is the angle you stand at. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their right hand draped across their body. The left arm of beginner players is usually slung over their body. Most coaches advise that you hold the club in the neutral grip or similar to a baseball posture. By holding the club in a neutral position can ensure that you don’t have an arm that is not dominant during your swing.
Tennis players who have open stance forehand are more likely to have problems with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have issues with their grip. This problem can be solved by using a neutral grip. Tennis players with open stance forehand must try to hold the racket with a closed grip. You can achieve this by placing the racket in front of your skull, keeping your knees bent, and keeping your elbows locked.
Tennis players that have a dominant hand should move the racket above their head and over their shoulder. If you’re a left handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should face 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, making sure you don’t give either side of your body any room to swing.
