Tennis is a very popular sport. Everyone can play tennis, from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their ability to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Tennis players are often unable to hit forehands because of a lack of knowledge about how to properly engage their muscles in is the best way to hit powerful forehands. In the same way, tennis players struggle with backhands because they do not know enough about how to position themselves to hit a great backhand down the court. These two areas are essential to the sport and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is dependent on your grip. Many new players make the mistake of holding the racket too tightly or loosely and end up hitting the ball too far or making an incorrect contact or even having the racket fall off when they are swinging at the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will give you the best opportunity to strike the ball correctly every time.
The other important factor to keep in mind is that your forehand swing should begin straight and then curve towards the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow through. This is referred to as cut shot or high arc. A low arc or hook would start out with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will determine what kind of shots you need to be practicing. If you are practicing the bank shot technique your forehand’s swing path will naturally curve toward the top as you get closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders aligned with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with the ball, allowing your arms to swing with ease. When you swing, your shoulders must not leave the racquet’s socket. It can make it very difficult to catch the ball when this occurs.
When approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is directed from your side , not towards your backside. Rotating your arms to the side could reduce your power and your ability to generate power. In order to get your arm to rotate correctly you need to have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip can result in injury. It can cause you not to hit the ball or cause you overextend your arms. This could result in injury.
The angle of your stance is an crucial factor to ensure an effective grip. Most tennis players are right handed and carry their right arm across their bodies. For those who are just beginning, their left arm is usually carried across their body. Most coaches recommend that you hold the club in the neutral grip or similar to a baseball posture. By holding the club in a neutral position can ensure that you don’t have an arm that is not dominant when you swing.
Open stance forehand tennis players are more likely to have issues with their forearms. If a player has an open stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists and not have a proper grip. This issue can be resolved by using an upright grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehand should attempt to use a closed grip. 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. If you’re a right handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a left-handed player, it should face towards your waist. This will help prevent either the over-the-head swing or the under-shoulder swing from happening. When you swing keep your wrists straight, and keep them down your hips so that you don’t allow either side of your body a chance to swing.
