Tennis Shots

Tennis is one of the most loved sports in the world. Anyone can play tennis, from beginners to pros. There are two main categories of tennis players. They can be classified according to their ability to hit the ball farther than a backhand or forehand. Most times, tennis players struggle with their forehands as they aren’t aware of how to properly engage the correct muscles for their forehands or in what order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also struggle with their backhands due to insufficient knowledge about how to position themselves in order to hit a strong backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the sport and must be addressed.

A successful tennis swing is contingent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the error 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. Holding the racket the right way will give you the best opportunity to hit the ball in the right way every time.

The other thing you need to remember is that your forehand 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 called a high arc or cut shot. A low arc or hook would start out with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine the type of shots you should be practicing. For example, if you are practicing a technique that is known as the bank shot your forehand’s swing path will naturally turn toward the top as you get closer to the ball.

Keep your shoulders in line with the ball as you swing. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with your ball, allowing your arms to swing with ease. Remember that your shoulders should never leave the socket or your tennis racquet during your swing. This can make it extremely difficult to capture the ball if this occurs.

When you are approaching the ball, ensure to rotate your arm from your side, not your backside. Rotating your arm to the side will weaken the ability of your arm to generate power and produce a strong backswing. To get your arm to rotate properly you need to have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip could be dangerous since it could cause you to be unable to catch the ball, or it could cause you to overextend your arm. This can result in injuries.

The angle of your stance is also an important aspect to ensure an effective grip. The majority of tennis players are right handed and have their right arm slung across their bodies. The left arm of newbies is usually slung over their body. The majority of coaches advise holding the club with a neutral grip or a style similar to a baseball position. A neutral grip will stop you from swinging with an arm that isn’t dominant.

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. This issue can be fixed by holding the racket with a neutral grip. Closed grips are best for players with an open forehand. This can be achieved by placing the racket on your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.

Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should move the racket over their head and above their shoulders. The racket should point towards your crotch if an right-handed player, and it should face your waist if you are left-handed. This will prevent the swing that is over the head or the under-shoulder swing from happening. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, ensure that you don’t give any part of your body too much space.
