Tennis is among the most played sports in the world. Tennis is a game that anyone can play, from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball farther and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Most often, tennis players have difficulty with their forehands as they don’t know how to properly engage the correct muscles for their forehands or in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due to lack of knowledge on how to properly position themselves to hit a good backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the game and must be addressed.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on your grip. Many beginners make the error of holding their racket in a way that is too loose or tight and then miss the ball making poor contact, or letting their racket slide when they swing at the ball. The best way to strike the ball correctly is to hold the racket in the proper position.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should be straight. When you reach the top of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should be curved towards your top. This is referred to as cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low angle will have an natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will affect the type of shots that you must be learning. For instance, if, for example, you are practicing a technique known as the bank shot, your forehand swing will naturally shift towards the top as you move closer to the ball.
Be sure to keep your shoulders aligned with the ball. This will keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball even as your arms move freely. When you swing, your shoulders must not move away from the racquet’s socket. If this happens, it could be very difficult to catch the ball.
When you are approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is pointed from your side , not to your backside. The arm that is rotated to the side will weaken your ability to generate power and produce a strong backswing. In order to get your arm to rotate correctly it is essential to have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip can cause injuries. It could cause you to not to hit the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could result in injuries.
Another important aspect in the correct grip is the angle you stand at. Most tennis players are right-handed and have their right arm stretched across their bodies. For beginners, their left arm is usually carried across their body. Most coaches advise that you hold the club with an open grip or similar to a baseball position. The club should be held in a neutral position will ensure that you don’t have an arm that is not dominant during your swing.
Tennis players with open stance forehand tend to have issues with their forearms. When players with an open-stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists and not have a proper grip. This issue can be resolved by holding the racket in an upright grip. Closed grips are best for players with an open forehand. This can be done by putting the racket behind your head while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant handed should swing the racket in front of their head and above their shoulders. If you’re a right handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a left-handed player, it should face towards your waist. This will prevent the over the head swing and the under-the shoulder swing from happening. When you swing, keep your wrists straight and down your hips, making sure you don’t allow either side of your body any room to swing.
