Tennis is one of the most played sports played in the world. Tennis is a sport that anyone can play from beginners to professional. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball more and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Tennis players often struggle to hit forehands due inexperience with how to properly engage their muscles and what order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also struggle with their backhands due to lack of understanding about how to properly 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 wish to excel at the sport.
A successful tennis swing is dependent on your grip. Many beginners make the mistake of holding the racket too loose or tight and end up missing the ball making poor contact, or letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. The best method to hit the ball correctly is to keep the racket correctly in the right position.
Another important thing to be aware of is that your forehand’s swing path should begin straight and then curve towards the top of your body when you get to the top of your follow through. This is referred to as cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low arc will have an natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will affect the type of shots that you should be learning. If you are working on 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 squared with the ball. This helps to keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball even as your arms move freely. Be aware that your shoulders must not be removed from the socket or racquet while you are swinging. This can make it extremely difficult to take the ball back in the event that this occurs.
As you approach the ball, ensure to move your arm to your side, not from your backside. Rotating your arms to the side could reduce your power and ability generate power. You need a solid grip to control the rotation of your arm. A weak grip could be very dangerous because it can cause you to lose the ball or could cause you to overextend your arm. This could result in injury.
Another key factor in the correct grip is the angle of your stance. Tennis beginners tend to be right-handed and have their left hand spread across their body. The left arm of newbies is usually slung over their body. Most coaches recommend holding the club with a neutral grip, or in a similar way to a baseball position. A neutral grip can stop you from swinging with an arm that is not dominant.
Forehand tennis players with open stances are more likely to have issues with their forearms. When players with an open-stance forehand, they tend to twist their wrists, and they do not have a good grip. One way to address this problem is to hold the racket using an even grip. Closed grips are the best choice for tennis 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 have a non-dominant hand should move the racket above their head and over their shoulders. If you’re a left 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 or the swing under the shoulder from occurring. Keep your wrists straight as you swing. Also, make sure you don’t allow any side of your body too much space.
