Tennis is a very popular sport. Tennis is a sport that anyone can play from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their ability to hit the ball farther and higher than a forehand or backhand. Most often, tennis players struggle with hitting forehands because they do not know how to engage the proper muscles for their forehands or in which order to hit powerful forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with their backhands as they do not know enough about the proper way to properly position themselves for a great backhand down the court. Therefore, these two important areas of the game need to be addressed by those who wish to be successful in the sport.

The grip is the most crucial aspect of a successful tennis swing. Many new players make the mistake of holding their racket in a way that is too loose or tight and then miss the ball, making poor contact or letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. The best way to strike the ball correctly is to hold the racket in the correct position.

The other important factor to keep in mind is that your forehand swing should begin straight and then curve upwards towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow through. This is called cut or high arc shot. A low arc or hook will begin with the more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors can affect the type of shots you need to master. For instance, if, for example, you are practicing a technique that is known as the bank shot, your forehand’s swing path will naturally shift towards the top as you get closer to the ball.

Keep your shoulders in line with the ball as you swing. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with the ball which allows your arms to move freely. While you move your arms, your shoulders should not be able to leave the socket of your racquet. This can make it extremely difficult to catch the ball in the event that this occurs.

When you approach the ball, ensure that your arm is pointed towards your side, and not to your backside. Rotating your arm on your side actually weakens your ability to generate power and produce a strong backswing. To allow your arm to rotate correctly it is essential to be able to grip the club. A weak grip can be extremely dangerous as it can cause you lose the ball or could cause you to overextend your arm. This could result in injuries.

The angle of your stance is also an important factor in ensuring the grip you have. Most tennis players are right-handed and have their right arm slung across their body. The left arm of newbies is usually slung over their body. Most coaches advise that you hold the club in the neutral grip or like a baseball position. A neutral grip will stop you from hitting with an arm that is not dominant.

Tennis players who have open stance forehand tend to have issues with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have problems with their grip. One way to address this issue is to hold the racket with an even grip. Closed grips are the best choice for players with an open forehand. This can be accomplished by placing the racket over your head while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.

Tennis players who have a non-dominant handed should swing the racket above their head and over their shoulders. The racket should face your crotch in case you are an right-handed player and the racket should be pointing towards your waist if left handed. 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 to ensure that you don’t allow either side of your body any room to swing.
