Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Tennis is a sport that anyone can play, from beginners to professional. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their level to hit the ball more and higher than a forehand or backhand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands due to inexperience with how to effectively engage their muscles in is the best way to hit powerful forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with backhands because they aren’t aware about how to set themselves up to hit a perfect backhand on the court. These two areas are essential to the sport and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on the grip you use. Many new players make the mistake of holding the racket too tightly or too loosely and end up missing the ball or making an incorrect contact or having the racket fall off when they swing at the ball. The best way to strike the ball correctly is to keep the racket in the proper position.
The other thing you need to remember is that your forehand swing path should be straight from the beginning and then curve toward the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow-through. This is known as a high arc or cut shot. A low arc or hook will begin with the more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine what type of shots you should be practicing. If you are working on the bank shot technique the forehand swing path will naturally curve toward the top as you get closer to the ball.
Keep your shoulders in line with the ball when you swing. This helps to keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms swing freely. When you move your arms, your shoulders should not be able to leave the racquet’s socket. It could make it extremely difficult to take the ball back if this happens.
As you approach the ball, ensure to rotate your arm from your side, not your backside. Rotating your arm towards your side can reduce your power and your ability to generate power. In order to get your arm to rotate properly, you must hold a firm grip on the club. Having a weak grip can be extremely dangerous as it can cause you to miss the ball or it can cause you to overextend your arm. This could result in injuries.
The angle of your stance is another important aspect to ensure the grip you have. Tennis beginners are typically right-handed and have their left hand spread across their body. The left arm of newbies is usually slung over their body. Most coaches advise that you hold the club with an open grip or similar to a baseball posture. A neutral grip can stop you from swinging with an arm that isn’t dominant.
Tennis players who have open stance forehand tend to have issues with their forearms. If players have an open stance forehand, they tend to twist their wrists and do not have a good 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. This can be achieved by placing the racket on your skull, keeping your knees bent and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant handed should swing the racket over their head and above their shoulders. If you’re a right-handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will help prevent either the swing that is over the head or the swing under the shoulder from happening. When you swing keep your wrists straight and down your hips, making sure you do not give either side of your body any room to swing.
