Tennis is a very well-known sport. Tennis is a sport that everyone can play, from beginners to professional. There are two main types of tennis players. They are classified based on their ability to hit the ball more than a forehand or backhand. Most often, tennis players struggle when they hit forehands due to the fact that they don’t know how to properly engage the proper muscles for their forehands or in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with their backhands as they don’t know enough about how to properly position themselves for a great backhand down the court. These two areas are vital to the game and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is dependent on your grip. Many beginners make the error of holding the racket too loose or tight and end up missing the ball making poor contact, or letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. The right way to hold the racket in the right way will give you the best opportunity to hit the ball accurately every time.
The other thing you need to keep in mind is that your forehand’s swing path should be straight from the beginning and then curve toward the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow-through. This is known as cut shot or high arc. A low arc or hook would start out with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will influence the kind of shots you must be learning. If you are working on the bank shot technique the forehand swing path will naturally curve toward the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders aligned with the ball. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms move freely. Be aware that your shoulders should never move away from the socket or the tennis racquet during your swing. If this happens, it can be extremely difficult to catch the ball.
As you approach the ball, ensure to rotate your arm from your side, not from your backside. Rotating your arm to the side will weaken your ability to generate energy and produce a strong backswing. To get your arm to move properly, you must be able to grip the club. A weak grip could lead to injuries. It could cause you to miss the ball, or cause you to overextend your arms. This could result in injuries.
Another crucial aspect of the proper grip is the angle of your stance. Most tennis players are right handed and have their right arm slung across their bodies. For beginners the left arm is typically carried over their body. Most coaches suggest holding the club with an even grip, or a style similar to a baseball position. Holding the club in a neutral position can ensure that you don’t have an arm that is not dominant when you swing.
Tennis players with open stance forehand tend to have issues 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. Tennis players who have open stance forehands should try to have a closed grip. This can be accomplished by placing the racket over your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should move the racket in front of 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, the racket should be pointing towards your waist. This will help prevent either the head-over-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 give either side of your body a chance to swing.
