Tennis is among the most loved sports in the world. Tennis is a game that anyone can play from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their skill to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or backhand. Most often, tennis players have difficulty with their forehands as they don’t know how to engage the proper muscles for their forehands, and in what order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due to insufficient knowledge about how to properly position themselves to hit a solid backhand down the court. This is why these two essential areas of the game must to be addressed by those who want to be successful in the sport.
The grip is the most important element of an effective tennis swing. Many new players make the mistake of holding their racket too tight or loosely and then miss the ball making poor contact, or having their racket slip when they swing at the ball. The best way to hit the ball correctly is to keep the racket correctly in the right position.
The other important factor to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should be straight from the beginning and then curve upwards towards the top of your body when you get to the top of your follow through. This is known as cut shots or high arc. A low arc or hook would start out with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine the kind of shots you should be practicing. For instance, if you are practicing a technique referred to as the bank shot, your forehand swing path will naturally move towards the top as you move closer to the ball.
Remember to always swing with your shoulders aligned with the ball. This helps to keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball even as your arms swing freely. While you move your arms, your shoulders should not move away from the racquet’s socket. It could make it extremely difficult to catch the ball if this happens.
When you are approaching the ball, make sure that your arm is pointing from your side , not towards your backside. Moving your arm towards your side can decrease your power and ability to generate power. You need a solid grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip could be dangerous since it can cause you to be unable to catch the ball, or it could cause you to extend your arm. This could cause injuries.
Another important aspect in the correct grip is the angle you stand at. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their right hand spread across their body. The left arm of newbies is often carried over their body. Most coaches recommend holding the club with a neutral grip, or in a similar way to a baseball grip. The club should be held in a neutral position will help prevent you from having an arm that is not dominant when you swing.
Tennis players who have open stance forehands tend to have problems with their forearms. If a player has an open stance forehand they tend to twist their wrists and do not have a good grip. This problem can be solved by using an upright grip. Tennis players with an open stance forehand must try to have a closed grip. This can be achieved by placing the racket behind your skull, your knees bent and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should hold the racket above their head and above their shoulders. If you’re a right-handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a left-handed player, it should face towards your waist. This will prevent the over the head swing and the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight as you swing. Also, ensure you don’t give any part of your body too much room.
