Tennis is one of the most loved sports played in the world. Tennis is a sport that anyone can play from beginners to professional. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their ability to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Most often, tennis players have difficulty with their forehands as they do not know how to engage the correct muscles for their forehands and in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due lack of understanding about how to position themselves to hit a good backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the game and must be addressed.
The grip is the most crucial aspect of the successful tennis swing. Many beginners make the mistake of gripping the racket to tight or loose and end up missing the ball or making a poor contact or having the racket fall off when they are swinging 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.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s swing path should be straight. As you get closer to the top of your follow-through, your forehand’s swing path should curve towards your top. This is called cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low arc would have a 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’s swing is likely to curve towards the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Keep your shoulders in line with the ball whenever you swing. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with your ball which allows your arms to swing with ease. Keep in mind that the shoulders must never move away from the socket or the racquet while you are swinging. It can make it very difficult to capture the ball when this happens.
When you approach the ball, ensure that your arm is pointing towards your side, and not your backside. The arm that is rotated to the side will weaken your ability to generate power and create a great backswing. In order to get your arm to rotate correctly you need to have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip can cause injury. It could cause you to not to hit the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could lead to injuries.
Another key factor in the proper grip is the angle you stand at. The majority of tennis players are right handed and carry their right arm across their body. The left arm of beginners is often carried over their body. Most coaches advise that you hold the club with an open grip or like a baseball position. By holding the club in a neutral position can ensure that you don’t have an arm that is not dominant when you swing.
Tennis players that have an open stance forehand tend to have problems with their forearms. When players with an open stance forehand they tend to twist their wrists, and they do not have a proper grip. This problem can be solved by holding the racket with an upright grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehand must try to use a closed grip. This can be done by placing the racket on 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 over their heads and then over their shoulder. If you’re a right handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a left-handed player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will stop the over-the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight, and keep them down your hips to ensure that you don’t give either side of your body a chance to swing.
