Tennis is among the most popular sports played in the world. Tennis is a game that anyone can play from beginners to professional. Tennis players can be divided into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball farther and higher than a backhand or forehand. Most times, tennis players struggle with their forehands as they aren’t aware of how to engage the correct muscles for their forehands or in which order to hit powerful forehands. In the same way, tennis players struggle with backhands because they aren’t aware about how to set themselves up to hit a perfect backhand on the court. So, these two crucial areas of the game must to be addressed by those who want to be a pro at the game.
The grip is the most critical aspect of an effective tennis swing. Many beginners make the mistake of holding their racket in a way that is too loose or tight and then miss the ball and making poor contact or having their racket slip when they hit the ball. The best way to hit the ball correctly is to keep the racket correctly in the right position.
The other important factor to keep in mind is that your forehand’s swing path 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 shot or high arc. A hook with a low arc would have an natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will determine what kind of shots you should be practicing. If you are practicing the bank shot technique, your forehand swing path will naturally curve toward the top as you get closer to the ball.
Be sure to keep your shoulders in line with the ball. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball even as your arms are free to move. While you swing, your shoulders must not move away from the racquet’s socket. It could make it extremely difficult to take the ball back if this happens.
As you approach the ball, be sure to rotate your arm from your side, not from your backside. Rotating your arm to the side will weaken your ability to generate energy and create a great backswing. To allow your arm to move properly, you must have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip could be very dangerous because it could cause you to miss the ball or it could cause you to extend your arm. This could result in injuries.
The angle of your stance is an crucial factor to ensure a good grip. Tennis beginners tend to be right-handed and have their right hand spread across their body. For those who are just beginning, their left arm is typically carried over their body. Most coaches recommend using an even grip, or in a similar way to a baseball grip. 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 tend to have issues with their forearms. Forehand players with an open stance are more likely to have issues with their grip. One way to address this problem is to hold the racket using a neutral grip. Tennis players with open stance forehand should attempt to use 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 that have a hand that is not dominant should swing the racket above their head and then over their shoulder. 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 occurring. Keep your wrists straight while you swing. Also, ensure that you don’t give any side of your body too much space.
