Tennis is one of the most popular sports played in the world. Everyone can play tennis from beginners to professionals. There are two main types of tennis players. They can be classified according to their ability to hit the ball further than a backhand or forehand. Most often, tennis players have difficulty with hitting forehands because they don’t know how to engage the proper muscles for their forehands and in what order to hit strong forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with their backhands as they do not know enough about how to properly position themselves for a perfect backhand on the court. This is why these two essential areas of the game need to be addressed by those who want to be a pro at the sport.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on the grip you use. Many new players make the mistake of holding the racket too loose or tight and then miss the ball and making poor contact or letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. The best way to strike the ball correctly is to keep the racket in the proper position.
The other thing you need to remember is that your forehand’s swing path should be straight from the beginning and then curve toward the top of your body when you get to the top of your follow through. This is known as a high arc or cut shot. A low arc or hook will begin with the more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will affect the type of shots that you should be learning. If you’re practicing the bank shot technique your forehand’s swing path will naturally curve toward the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Remember to always swing with your shoulders in line with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders are always in contact with your ball, allowing your arms to move freely. Remember that your shoulders should never move away from the socket or the racquet while you are swinging. If this happens, it will be very difficult to capture the ball.
When you approach the ball, ensure that your arm is pointing from your side , not to your backside. Rotating your arms to the side could reduce your power and ability generate power. To get your arm to rotate properly, you must hold a firm grip on the club. Having a weak grip can be very dangerous because it can cause you be unable to catch the ball, or it can cause you to overextend your arm. This could cause injury.
Another key factor in the proper grip is the angle of your stance. Most tennis players are right handed and have their right arm stretched across their body. For beginners, their left arm is usually slung over their body. The majority of coaches advise holding the club with a neutral grip, or in a manner similar to a baseball grip. By holding the club in a neutral position can aid in preventing a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Open stance forehand tennis players tend to have problems with their forearms. Forehand players with an open stance are more likely to have issues with their grip. A great solution to this problem is to hold the racket using a neutral grip. Closed grips are ideal for tennis players with an open forehand. You can achieve this by placing the racket behind your skull, with your knees bent and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who have a non-dominant hand should swing the racket over their heads and over their shoulders. If you’re a right handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will stop the over-the head swing and the under-the shoulder swing from happening. When you swing keep your wrists straight and lower your hips so that you don’t give either side of your body any space to swing.
