Serving Tennis

Tennis is one of the most loved sports played in the world. Anyone can play tennis, from beginners to the pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their ability to hit the ball farther and higher than a forehand or backhand. Tennis players often struggle to hit forehands due to a lack of knowledge about how to properly engage their muscles and what to do to hit forehands that are strong. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with backhands because they don’t know enough about how to set themselves up to hit a nice backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the sport and must be addressed.

A successful tennis swing is dependent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the mistake of gripping the racket to tight or loose and end up missing the ball or making an incorrect contact or even having the racket fall off when they are swinging at the ball. Holding the racket the right way will give you the best chance to hit the ball accurately every time.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s path should be straight. When you reach the top end of your follow-through, your forehand’s swing path should be curved towards your top. This is known as a cut shot or high arc. A hook with a low angle will have an natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will determine what kind of shots you should be practicing. If you are practicing the bank shot technique your forehand’s swing course will naturally curve towards the top as it gets closer to the ball.

Be sure to keep your shoulders squared with the ball. This helps to keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms swing freely. Be aware that your shoulders must never leave the socket or your racquet when you swing. It could make it extremely difficult to capture the ball if this occurs.

When you are approaching the ball, ensure to move your arm to your side, not from your backside. By putting your arm on your side can weaken your ability to generate energy and produce a strong backswing. To get your arm to rotate correctly, you must be able to grip the club. A weak grip can be very dangerous because it can cause you to lose the ball or could cause you to overextend your arm. This could result in injury.

Another key factor in the proper grip is the angle of your stance. Tennis beginners are typically right-handed and have their left hand slung across the body. For those who are just beginning, their left arm is typically carried over their body. The majority of coaches suggest that you hold the club in an open grip or similar to a baseball position. Holding the club in a neutral position will aid in preventing an arm that is not dominant when you swing.

Forehand tennis players who have an open stance are more likely to have problems with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have problems with their grip. One way to address this problem is to hold the racket with a neutral grip. Closed grips are the best choice for tennis players with an open forehand. You can achieve this by placing the racket behind your skull, with your knees bent, and keeping 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 point towards your crotch in case you are left handed and should be facing your waist if you are left handed. This will prevent the over-the head swing and the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight and lower your hips so that you don’t allow either side of your body any space to swing.
