Tennis is a hugely popular sport. It is a sport anyone can play, from beginners to professional. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball more and higher than a backhand or forehand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands due to the lack of knowledge on how to properly engage their muscles and what is the best way to hit powerful forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with their backhands as they do not know enough about how to set themselves up to hit a nice backhand down the court. Therefore, these two important areas of the game must to be addressed by those who wish to excel at the sport.
A successful tennis swing depends on your grip. Many new players make the mistake of holding their racket in a way that is too loose or tight and end up missing the ball making poor contact, or having their racket slip when they hit the ball. The best method to hit the ball correctly is to hold the racket correctly in the right position.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should be straight. When you reach the top of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should curve towards your top. This is known as cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low arc would have an inherent wrist hinge as well as wrist extension. These factors will determine the kind of shots you need to be practicing. If you are working on the bank shot technique your forehand’s swing course will naturally 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, allowing your arms to move freely. When you swing, your shoulders should not move away from the socket of your racquet. If this happens, it can be very difficult to capture the ball.
As you approach the ball, be sure to rotate your arm from your side, not from your backside. Moving your arm to your side can actually reduce your power and your ability generate power. To get your arm to rotate correctly it is essential to have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip can result in injury. It can cause you lose the ball, or cause you to overextend your arms. This could result in injuries.
The angle of your stance is another important aspect to ensure an effective grip. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their right arm stretched across their body. For beginners their left arm is usually slung across their body. The majority of coaches advise using a neutral grip, or a style similar to a baseball position. The club should be held in a neutral posture will aid in preventing an arm that is not dominant when you swing.
Tennis players who have open stance forehand tend 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 problem is to hold the racket using a neutral 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 with a dominant hand should move the racket over their head and over their shoulders. The racket should be facing your crotch in case you are an right-handed player and should be facing your waist if left-handed. This will prevent the over the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from happening. When you swing, keep your wrists straight and down your hips to ensure that you don’t give either side of your body any space to swing.
