Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Everyone can play tennis, from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be divided into two broad categories based on their ability level to hit the ball more and higher than a backhand or forehand. Most often, tennis players have difficulty when they hit forehands due to the fact that they don’t know how to use the right muscles for their forehands or in what order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due lack of understanding about how to position themselves to hit a strong backhand down the court. Therefore, these two important areas of the game must to be addressed by those who want to excel at the sport.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the mistake of gripping the racket too tightly or loosely and end up not hitting the ball or making an incorrect contact or even having the racket break off when they swing at the ball. Holding the racket the right way will give you the best opportunity to hit the ball in the right way every time.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s swing path should begin straight and then curve toward the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow-through. This is referred to as cut shots or high arc. A low arc or hook starts with the more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine what type of shots you should be practicing. If you are practicing the bank shot technique the forehand swing is likely to curve towards the top as you get closer to the ball.
Be sure to 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 move freely. While you move your arms, your shoulders should not leave the socket of your racquet. If this happens, it will be very difficult to catch the ball.
When approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is pointed from your side , not to your backside. Rotating your arm on your side actually weakens your ability to generate power and create a great backswing. In order to get your arm to rotate properly, you must hold a firm grip on the club. A weak grip could lead to injury. It could cause you to lose the ball or cause you overextend your arms. This can lead to injuries.
The angle of your stance is also an crucial factor to ensure an effective grip. Most tennis beginners are right-handed and have their right arm slung across their body. The left arm of beginners is often carried over their body. The majority of coaches advise using a neutral grip, or in a manner similar to a baseball grip. A neutral grip will prevent you from hitting with an arm that is not dominant.
Forehand tennis players who have an open stance tend to have issues with their forearms. If a player has an open stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists, and they do not have a good grip. This problem can be solved by using a neutral grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehand must try to hold the racket with a closed grip. This can be achieved by placing the racket on your skull, with your knees bent, and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant handed should swing the racket in front of their head and above their shoulders. The racket should point towards your crotch if an right-handed player and should be facing your waist if you are left-handed. This will stop the over-the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight while you swing. Also, ensure that you don’t give any side of your body too much space.
