Tennis is among the most popular sports in the world. Tennis is a game that anyone can play from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their ability level to hit the ball farther and higher than a backhand or forehand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands due a lack of knowledge about how to effectively engage their muscles and in what to do to hit forehands that are strong. Tennis players also struggle with their backhands because of insufficient knowledge about how to position themselves in order to hit a solid backhand down the court. These two areas are vital to the sport and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is dependent on your grip. Many new players make the mistake of gripping the racket too tight or loose, and end up either missing the ball or making a poor contact or even having the racket break off when they swing at the ball. The best way to hit the ball correctly is to keep the racket in the correct position.
The other important factor to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should start out straight and then curve towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow through. This is called cut shots or high arc. A hook with a low arc will have a natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors can affect the type of shots you should be learning. If you are working on the bank shot technique the forehand swing is likely to curve towards the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Keep your shoulders in line with the ball when you swing. This will keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms are free to move. When you move your arms, your shoulders should not move away from the racquet’s socket. It could make it extremely difficult to capture the ball in the event that this occurs.
As you approach the ball, be sure to rotate your arm from your side, not your backside. By putting your arm to the side will weaken your ability to generate power and generate a good backswing. In order to get your arm to move properly you need to have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip can result in injury. It can cause you miss the ball or cause you overextend your arms. This could result in injury.
The angle of your stance is also an important aspect to ensure an effective grip. Most tennis players are right-handed and have their right arm slung across their body. The left arm of newbies is often slung across their body. Most coaches suggest holding the club with a neutral grip, or in a similar way to a baseball position. A neutral grip can stop you from swinging with an arm that isn’t dominant.
Forehand tennis players who have an open stance are more likely to have issues with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have problems with their grip. This problem can be solved by holding the racket with an upright grip. Closed grips are best for players with an open forehand. You can achieve this by placing the racket in front of your skull, your knees bent, and keeping your elbows locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant handed should swing the racket above their head and over their shoulders. The racket should face your crotch in case you are an right-handed player and the racket should be pointing towards your waist if left-handed. This will prevent the over the head swing and the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, ensure that you don’t give any part of your body too much space.
