Tennis is a very popular sport. Tennis is a sport that anyone can play from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their skill to hit the ball further and higher than a backhand or forehand. Tennis players often struggle to hit forehands because of the lack of knowledge on how to effectively engage their muscles and in what is the best way to hit powerful forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands because of lack of understanding about how to position themselves to hit a solid backhand down the court. These two areas are vital to the sport and must be addressed.
The grip is the most important aspect of the successful tennis swing. Many new players make the mistake of holding their racket too loose or tight and then miss the ball making poor contact, or letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. Holding the racket the right way will give you the best chance to strike the ball correctly every time.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s swing path should be straight. As you approach the top end of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should curve towards your top. This is referred to as a high arc or cut shot. A hook with a low arc will have a natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will affect the type of shots you must be learning. If you’re practicing the bank shot technique, your forehand swing path will naturally curve toward the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball when you swing. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms move freely. When you swing, your shoulders should not leave the socket of your racquet. This can make it extremely difficult to take the ball back when this happens.
When you are approaching the ball, ensure to move your arm to your side, not from your backside. Rotating your arms towards your side can reduce your power and your ability to generate power. In order to get your arm to rotate properly it is essential to be able to grip the club. Having a weak grip can be extremely dangerous as it can cause you lose the ball or could cause you to overextend your arm. This could result in injury.
Another crucial aspect of the correct grip is the angle of your stance. Most tennis beginners are right-handed and carry their right arm across their bodies. The left arm of newbies is usually slung over their body. The majority of coaches suggest that you hold the club with the neutral grip or like a baseball position. Holding the club in a neutral position will aid in preventing a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Forehand tennis players who have an open stance are more likely to have problems with their forearms. If a player has an open stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists, and they do not have a proper grip. This issue can be resolved by holding the racket in neutral grip. Tennis players with open stance forehand should attempt to have a closed grip. This can be accomplished by putting the racket behind your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players who have a hand that is not dominant should swing the racket over their head and then over their shoulder. If you’re a left handed player, the racket should face your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, the racket should be pointing towards your waist. This will stop the over-the head swing and the under-the-shoulder swing from happening. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, make sure you don’t allow any side of your body too much room.
