Tennis is one of the most loved sports in the world. Everyone can play tennis from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their skill to hit the ball more and higher than a forehand or backhand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands due to the lack of knowledge on how to effectively engage their muscles and what to do to hit forehands that are strong. Also, tennis players struggle with their backhands as they do not know enough about the proper way to properly position themselves for a perfect backhand on the court. This is why these two essential areas of the game need to be addressed by those who want to excel at the sport.
The grip is the most crucial aspect of the successful tennis swing. 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 letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will provide you with the best chance to strike the ball correctly every time.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s swing path should be straight. As you get closer to the top end of your follow-through, your forehand’s swing path should curve towards your top. This is referred to as cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low angle will have an natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine the kind of shots you need to be practicing. If you’re practicing the bank shot technique, your forehand swing course will naturally curve towards the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders remain in constant contact with your ball which allows your arms to swing freely. Remember that your shoulders should never leave the socket or your tennis racquet during your swing. It could make it extremely difficult to capture the ball when this occurs.
When approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is directed from your side and not your backside. Rotating your arm on your side actually weakens your ability to generate energy and generate a good backswing. To get your arm to rotate properly, you must be able to grip the club. A weak grip can result in injuries. It can cause you lose the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could cause injuries.
Another key factor in the proper grip is the angle of your stance. Most tennis beginners are right handed and have their right arm stretched across their bodies. The left arm of newbies is often carried over their body. Most coaches recommend holding the club with a neutral grip, or in a manner similar to a baseball grip. A neutral grip will stop you from hitting with an arm that isn’t dominant.
Tennis players with open stance forehand tend to have problems with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have issues with their grip. A great solution to this problem is to hold the racket using an even grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehand must try to use a closed grip. This can be achieved by placing the racket behind your skull, your knees bent, and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who have a non-dominant hand should move the racket above their head and over their shoulders. The racket should be facing your crotch if you are an right-handed player and the racket should be pointing towards your waist if you are a left handed player. 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 keep them down your hips to ensure that you don’t give either side of your body any room to swing.
