Tennis is a very popular sport. It is a sport anyone can play, from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their level to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Tennis players are often unable to hit forehands due a lack of knowledge about how to effectively engage their muscles in to do to hit forehands that are strong. In the same way, tennis players struggle with backhands because they aren’t aware about how to properly position themselves for a perfect backhand on the court. These two areas are vital to the sport and must be addressed.
The grip is the most critical element of an effective tennis swing. Many beginners make the mistake of gripping the racket to tight or loose, and end up either hitting the ball too far or making an incorrect contact or having the racket break off when they are swinging at 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 thing you need to keep in mind is that your forehand’s swing path should begin straight and then curve upwards towards the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow-through. This is known as a cut shot or high arc. A hook with a low arc will have an natural 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 the 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 as you swing. This will ensure that your shoulders remain in constant contact with your ball which allows your arms to swing freely. While you swing, your shoulders must not be able to leave the racquet’s socket. If this happens, it can be very difficult to catch the ball.
As you approach the ball, make sure to move your arm to your side, not from your backside. Rotating your arms to your side can actually decrease your power and ability to generate power. You must have a strong grip to control the rotation of your arm. A weak grip could result in injury. It can cause you miss the ball, or cause you to overextend your arms. This could result in injury.
The angle of your stance is also an crucial factor to ensure an effective grip. Most tennis beginners are right handed and have their right arm slung across their body. The left arm of beginner players is often slung across their body. Most coaches suggest using a neutral grip or a style similar to a baseball position. By holding the club in a neutral posture will help prevent you from having a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Tennis players who have open stance forehands tend to have problems with their forearms. Forehands with an open stance tend to have issues with their grip. A great way to solve this issue is to hold the racket with a neutral grip. Tennis players with 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 have a dominant hand should move the racket above their head and over their shoulders. If you’re a left handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a left-handed player, it should face towards your waist. This will stop the over-the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight as you swing. Also, ensure you don’t give any side of your body too much room.
