Tennis is a very well-known sport. Anyone can play tennis, from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their ability to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or backhand. Tennis players are often unable to hit forehands due to inexperience with how to effectively engage their muscles and in what order to hit strong forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with backhands because they aren’t aware about the proper way to properly position themselves for a nice backhand down the court. These two areas are vital to the game and need to be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on your grip. Many beginners make the error of gripping the racket to tight or loose and end up missing the ball or making a poor contact or having the racket fall off when they swing at the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will give you the best chance to hit the ball in the right way every time.
The other thing you need to remember is that your forehand swing 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 called cut shots or high arc. A hook with a low arc would start out with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will influence the type of shots that you need to master. For example, if you are practicing a technique that is known as the bank shot, your forehand’s swing path will naturally turn toward the top as you move closer to the ball.
Keep your shoulders in line with the ball as you swing. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms move freely. When you move your arms, your shoulders should not leave the socket of your racquet. This can make it extremely difficult to capture the ball in the event that this occurs.
When you are approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is pointing towards your side, and not to your backside. Rotating your arms to your side can actually reduce your power and your ability to generate power. To allow your arm to rotate correctly you need to hold a firm grip on the club. A weak grip can be very dangerous because it could cause you to be unable to catch the ball, or it could cause you to overextend your arm. This can result in injuries.
The angle of your stance is also an crucial factor to ensure an effective grip. Tennis beginners tend to be right-handed and have their right hand spread across their body. The left arm of beginners is often slung across their body. The majority of coaches suggest that you hold the club in the neutral grip or like a baseball position. The club should be held in a neutral posture will help prevent you from having an arm that is not dominant when you swing.
Open stance forehand tennis players are more likely to have problems with their forearms. Forehands with an open stance tend to have issues with their grip. This issue can be fixed by holding the racket in neutral grip. Closed grips are ideal for tennis players with an open forehand. This can be done by placing the racket over your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players that have a non-dominant hand should swing the racket over their head and over their shoulder. 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 left handed. This will stop the swing that is over the head or the under-shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight, and keep them down your hips, making sure you do not give either side of your body any room to swing.
