Tennis is among the most loved sports played in the world. Tennis is a game that anyone can play, from beginners to professional. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their level to hit the ball more and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands due to the lack of knowledge on how to properly engage their muscles and in what order to hit strong forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with backhands due to the fact that they aren’t aware about the proper way to position themselves to hit a great backhand down the court. These two areas are vital to the game and must be addressed.
The grip is the most crucial element of an effective tennis swing. Many new players make the mistake of holding the 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 hit the ball accurately every time.
The other important factor to remember is that your forehand swing path should start out straight and then curve towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow-through. This is called a high arc or cut shot. A low arc or hook would start out with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will influence the type of shots you must be learning. If you are working on 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. When you move your arms, your shoulders should not leave the racquet’s socket. If this happens, it could be very difficult to take the ball back.
When approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is pointing towards your side, and not your backside. Rotating your arm on your side can weaken your ability to generate power and generate a good backswing. To get your arm to rotate properly you need to be able to grip the club. A weak grip can be extremely dangerous as it can cause you lose the ball or can cause you to overextend your arm. This could result in injuries.
The angle of your stance is an important factor in ensuring the grip you have. Tennis beginners tend to be right-handed and have their right hand draped across their body. The left arm of beginners is often carried over their body. The majority of coaches advise holding the club with an even grip, or in a similar way to a baseball grip. A neutral grip will prevent you from swinging with an arm that is not dominant.
Tennis players with open stance forehand are more likely to have problems with their forearms. Forehand players with an open stance are more likely to have problems with their grip. A great way to solve this problem is to hold the racket with an even grip. Closed grips are the best choice for tennis players who have an open forehand. This can be accomplished by placing the racket on your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should move the racket over their head and above their shoulders. The racket should point towards your crotch if an right-handed player, and it should face your waist if you’re a left handed player. 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, making sure you don’t allow either side of your body any space to swing.
