Tennis is among the most loved sports in the world. It is a sport anyone can play, from beginners to pros. There are two main categories of tennis players. They can be classified based on their ability to hit the ball further than a backhand or forehand. Most times, tennis players struggle when they hit forehands due to the fact that they don’t know how to use the right muscles for their forehands and in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with backhands due to the fact that they aren’t aware about the proper way to position themselves to hit a perfect backhand on the court. This is why these two essential areas of the game must to be addressed by those who wish to be a pro at the sport.
A successful tennis swing depends on the grip you use. Many new players make the mistake of holding the racket too tightly or loosely and end up missing the ball, making improper contact, or having the racket fall off while they swing at the ball. The best method to hit the ball correctly is to hold the racket in the proper position.
The other important factor to be aware of is that your forehand swing path should start out straight and then curve upwards towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow-through. This is referred to as cut or high arc shot. A low arc or hook would start out with the more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine what kind of shots you need to be practicing. If you are working on the bank shot technique, your forehand swing is likely to curve towards the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Keep your shoulders in line with the ball as you swing. This helps to keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms move freely. Be aware that your shoulders must never leave the socket or your tennis racquet during your swing. This can make it extremely difficult to capture the ball in the event that this occurs.
When you approach the ball, make sure that your arm is pointing from your side and not your backside. By putting your arm on your side actually weakens the ability of your arm to generate power and create a great backswing. To allow your arm to move properly 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 lead to injury.
Another key factor in the proper grip is the angle of your stance. Tennis beginners tend to be right-handed and have their right hand slung across the body. The left arm of newbies is usually slung over their body. Most coaches suggest using a neutral grip or in a similar way to a baseball position. By holding the club in a neutral position can ensure that you don’t have an arm that is not dominant when you swing.
Tennis players with open stance forehand are more likely to have issues with their forearms. When players with an open stance forehand, they are more likely to turn their wrists and do not have a good grip. This issue can be resolved by holding the racket in an upright grip. Closed grips are the best choice for players with an open forehand. You can achieve this by placing the racket in front of your skull, with your knees bent and your elbows locked.
Tennis players that have a dominant hand should move the racket above their head and over their shoulder. The racket should be facing your crotch if you are an right-handed player and should be facing your waist if you are left-handed. This will stop the swing that is over the head or the under-the-shoulder swing from happening. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, make sure you don’t give any part of your body too much space.
