Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Tennis is a sport that anyone can play from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be divided into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball more and higher than a backhand or forehand. Most often, tennis players struggle with hitting forehands because they don’t know how to properly use the right muscles for their forehands, and in what order to hit strong forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with their backhands as they aren’t aware about the proper way to position themselves to hit a perfect backhand on the court. These two areas are essential to the game and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing depends on the grip you use. Many new players make the mistake of holding the racket too loose or tight and then miss the ball, making poor contact or letting their racket slide when they swing at the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will give you the best opportunity to hit the ball in the right way every time.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s path should be straight. As you approach the top of your follow-through, your forehand’s path should curve towards your top. This is called cut shots or high arc. A hook with a low arc will have a natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will determine what kind of shots you need to be practicing. For instance, if, for example, you are practicing a technique that is known as the bank shot, your forehand swing will naturally turn toward the top as you get closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball whenever you swing. This will ensure that your shoulders remain in constant contact with the ball which allows your arms to move freely. Keep in mind that the shoulders must never be removed from the socket or racquet while you are swinging. If this happens, it could be extremely difficult to capture the ball.
When you get close to the ball, make sure to move your arm to your side, not from your backside. Rotating your arms to your side can actually reduce your power and ability to generate power. You must have a strong grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip could be dangerous since it can cause you to miss the ball or it could cause you to overextend your arm. This can result in injuries.
Another crucial aspect of the proper grip is the angle you stand at. The majority of tennis players are right handed and have their right arm stretched across their body. For beginners the left arm is typically carried over their body. Most coaches recommend using a neutral grip or in a similar way to a baseball position. A neutral grip can stop you from swinging with an arm that isn’t dominant.
Tennis players that have an open stance forehand tend to have problems with their forearms. Forehand players with an open stance are more likely to have issues with their grip. A great solution to this problem is to hold the racket using a neutral grip. Closed grips are ideal for tennis players who have an open forehand. This can be achieved by placing the racket on your skull, your knees bent, and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should hold the racket in front of their head and above their shoulders. If you’re a left handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will stop the over-the-head swing or the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight and lower your hips so that you don’t allow either side of your body a chance to swing.
