Tennis is a very popular sport. Everyone can play tennis from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be divided into two broad categories based on their ability level to hit the ball further and higher than a backhand or forehand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands due a lack of knowledge about how to properly engage their muscles and in what is the best way to hit powerful forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands because of insufficient knowledge about how to properly position themselves to hit a solid backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the game and need to be addressed.
A successful tennis swing depends on your grip. Many beginners make the error of holding their racket too loose or tight and end up missing the ball and making poor contact or having their racket slip when they hit the ball. Holding the racket the right way will give you the best opportunity to hit the ball accurately every time.
Another important thing to remember is that your forehand swing path should be straight. As you approach the top end of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should be curved towards your top. This is known as cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low arc will begin with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine the kind of shots you need to be practicing. If you’re practicing 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 will keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms are free to move. Keep in mind that the shoulders must never move away from the socket or the racquet while you are swinging. If this happens, it could be very difficult to catch the ball.
When you are approaching the ball, make sure that your arm is directed towards your side, and not your backside. Rotating your arms towards your side can reduce your power and ability generate power. In order to get your arm to move properly it is essential to have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip could result in injury. It can cause you 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. Most tennis beginners are right-handed and have their right arm stretched across their body. For beginners the left arm is typically carried over their body. Most coaches recommend holding the club with a neutral grip, or in a manner similar to a baseball grip. By holding the club in a neutral posture will help prevent you from having a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Forehand tennis players with open stances are more likely to have problems with their forearms. Forehand players with an open stance are more likely to have problems with their grip. A great way to solve this issue is to hold the racket with an even grip. Tennis players with open stance forehand should attempt to hold the racket with a closed grip. This can be done 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 over their head and over their shoulders. If you’re a right 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. Keep your wrists straight while you swing. Also, ensure that you don’t give any part of your body too much room.
