Tennis is one of the most loved sports played in the world. Everyone can play tennis, from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball more and higher than a forehand or backhand. Tennis players often struggle to hit forehands due inexperience with how to properly engage their muscles and what order to hit strong forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with backhands because they do not know enough about the proper way to set themselves up to hit a nice backhand down the court. Therefore, these two important areas of the game need to be addressed by those who want to excel at the game.
A successful tennis swing is dependent on your grip. Many new players make the mistake of holding the racket in a way that is too loose or tight and then miss the ball making poor contact, or having their racket slip when they swing at the ball. The right way to hold the racket in the right way will give you the best chance to strike the ball correctly every time.
Another important thing to remember is that your forehand’s swing path should be straight. When you reach the top end of your follow-through, your forehand’s path should curve towards your top. This is known as cut shots or high arc. A hook with a low arc will have a natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will influence the kind of shots you need to master. If you’re practicing the bank shot technique the forehand swing is likely to curve towards the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with the ball which allows your arms to swing with ease. Be aware that your shoulders should never leave the socket or your racquet when you swing. It can make it very difficult to catch the ball if this occurs.
When you are approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is pointed towards your side, and not your backside. By putting your arm to the side will weaken your ability to generate energy and create a great backswing. You must have a strong grip to control the rotation of your arm. A weak grip could cause injuries. It could cause you to miss the ball, or cause you to overextend your arms. This can result in injuries.
The angle of your stance is another important aspect to ensure the grip you have. Most tennis beginners are right handed and carry their right arm across their body. For those who are just beginning their left arm is usually slung over their body. Most coaches recommend that you hold the club with the neutral grip or like a baseball position. Holding the club in a neutral position can aid in preventing a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Tennis players with open stance forehand are more likely to have problems with their forearms. If players have an open-stance forehand, they tend to twist their wrists, and they do not have a proper grip. One way to address this issue is to hold the racket with a neutral grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehand should attempt to hold the racket with a closed grip. This can be achieved by putting the racket behind your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players that have a non-dominant hand should swing the racket over their head and then over their shoulder. 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 prevent the over-the head swing and the under-the shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, make sure you don’t give any part of your body too much space.
