Tennis is one of the most loved sports played in the world. Everyone can play tennis from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball more and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands because of the lack of knowledge on how to effectively engage their muscles and what to do to hit forehands that are strong. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due lack of knowledge on how to position themselves in order 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 important element of an effective tennis swing. Many new players make the mistake of gripping the racket too tightly or loosely and end up missing the ball or making a poor contact or even having the racket fall off while they swing at the ball. The best way to strike the ball correctly is to hold the racket in the proper position.
Another important thing to be aware of is that your forehand’s swing path should start out straight and then curve upwards towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow through. This is known as cut shot or high arc. A low arc or hook will begin with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will determine what kind of shots you need to be practicing. If you are working on the bank shot technique the forehand swing is likely to curve towards the top as you get closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders squared with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders remain in constant contact with your ball and allow your arms to swing freely. Be aware that your shoulders should never move away from the socket or the racquet when you swing. It could make it extremely difficult to take the ball back if this occurs.
When approaching the ball, make sure that your arm is pointed from your side , not to your backside. Moving your arm towards your side can decrease your power and ability to generate power. You must have a strong grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip could be very dangerous because it could cause you to lose the ball or could cause you to extend your arm. This could result in injuries.
The angle of your stance is an important aspect to ensure a good grip. Most tennis beginners are right-handed and carry their right arm across their body. For beginners, their left arm is typically carried across their body. Most coaches recommend that you hold the club in the neutral grip or similar to a baseball position. The club should be held in a neutral position will ensure that you don’t have a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Forehand tennis players who have an open stance tend to have problems with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have problems with their grip. This problem can be solved by holding the racket in neutral grip. Tennis players with 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 who have a non-dominant hand should hold the racket over their head and above their shoulders. If you’re a right handed player, the racket should face your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should face towards your waist. This will prevent the over the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight as you swing. Also, make sure you don’t allow any side of your body too much room.
