Tennis is a very popular sport. Tennis is a game that anyone can play from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball farther and higher than a forehand or backhand. Most often, tennis players struggle with their forehands as they don’t know how to properly use the right muscles for their forehands or in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with backhands due to the fact that they don’t know enough about the proper way to position themselves to hit a great backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the sport and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing depends on your grip. Many beginners make the mistake of holding their racket in a way that is too loose or tight and end up missing the ball and making poor contact or having their racket slip when they hit the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will provide you with the best chance to strike the ball correctly every time.
The other important factor to be aware of is that your forehand swing path should begin straight and then curve toward the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow-through. This is referred to as a high arc or cut shot. A hook with a low arc would have an inherent wrist hinge as well as wrist extension. These factors will determine what type of shots you should be practicing. For example, if you are practicing a technique referred to as the bank shot your forehand swing path will naturally move towards the top as you move closer to the ball.
Be sure to keep your shoulders aligned with the ball. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball even as your arms move freely. While you swing, your shoulders should not be able to leave the socket of your racquet. This can make it extremely difficult to take the ball back in the event that this happens.
When you are approaching the ball, make sure that your arm is pointed from your side and not to your backside. The arm that is rotated to the side will weaken your ability to generate power and create a great backswing. You need to have a strong grip to control the rotation of your arm. A weak grip could lead to injuries. It can cause you lose the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could lead to injuries.
Another important aspect in the correct grip is the angle of your stance. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their right arm stretched across their bodies. The left arm of beginners is often carried over their body. Most coaches suggest holding the club with a neutral grip, or in a manner similar to a baseball grip. By holding the club in a neutral position will help prevent you from having an arm that is not dominant during your swing.
Tennis players who have open stance forehand tend to have problems with their forearms. When players with an open stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists and not have a good grip. This issue can be fixed by holding the racket in an upright grip. Closed grips are best for players with an open forehand. This can be achieved by placing the racket in front of your skull, your knees bent and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should move the racket over their head and above their shoulders. If you’re a left handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a left-handed player, the racket should be pointing towards your waist. This will prevent the over-the-head swing or the under-shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight, and keep them down your hips, making sure you don’t give either side of your body a chance to swing.
