Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Tennis is a sport that everyone can play, from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their skill to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands because of inexperience with how to effectively engage their muscles and what to do to hit forehands that are strong. Also, tennis players struggle with their backhands as they do not know enough about the proper way to position themselves to hit a great backhand down the court. These two areas are vital to the sport and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on your grip. Many new players make the mistake of gripping the racket too tight or loose, and end up either hitting the ball too far or making a poor contact or having the racket fall off while they are swinging at the ball. The best way to hit the ball correctly is to keep the racket in the proper position.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s path should be straight. As you approach the top end of your follow-through, your forehand’s path should curve towards your top. This is referred to as cut or high arc shot. A low arc or hook will begin with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will determine what kind of shots you need to be practicing. For example, if you are practicing a technique referred to as the bank shot, your forehand swing path will naturally turn toward the top as you get closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders squared with the ball. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball even as your arms move freely. Remember that your shoulders should never be removed from the socket or tennis racquet during your swing. It can make it very difficult to take the ball back if this occurs.
When approaching the ball, make sure that your arm is pointing from your side and not your backside. By putting your arm to the side will weaken your ability to generate power and create a great backswing. You need to have a strong grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip can cause injury. It could cause you to miss the ball, or cause you to overextend your arms. This can lead to injury.
The angle of your stance is an important aspect to ensure a good grip. Most tennis beginners are right-handed and have their right arm stretched across their body. For beginners, their left arm is usually carried across their body. Most coaches suggest holding the club with an even grip, or a style similar to a baseball grip. The club should be held in a neutral position will ensure that you don’t have an arm that is not dominant during your swing.
Tennis players with open stance forehands tend to have issues with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have problems with their grip. One way to address this issue is to hold the racket with a neutral grip. Closed grips are the best choice for players with an open forehand. You can achieve this by placing the racket behind your skull, your knees bent, and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should hold 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 lefthanded player, it should face towards your waist. This will prevent the swing that is over the head or the under-shoulder swing from happening. Keep your wrists straight while you swing. Also, ensure that you don’t give any part of your body too much space.
