Tennis is a very popular sport. Anyone can play tennis, from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be divided into two broad categories based on their to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or backhand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands because of the lack of knowledge on how to effectively engage their muscles and in what to do to hit forehands that are strong. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands because of lack of knowledge on how to properly position themselves to hit a strong backhand down the court. So, these two crucial areas of the game need to be addressed by those who want to be successful in the game.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on your grip. Many beginners make the error of holding the racket in a way that is too loose or tight and end up missing 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 opportunity to hit the ball accurately every time.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s path should be straight. When you reach the top end of your follow-through, your forehand’s path should curve towards your top. This is called cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low arc will begin with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine what type of shots you should be practicing. For example, if you are practicing a technique that is known as the bank shot your forehand’s swing path will naturally turn toward the top as you get closer to the ball.
Be sure to keep your shoulders aligned with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders are always in contact with the ball, allowing your arms to move freely. Keep in mind that the shoulders must never move away from the socket or the tennis racquet during your swing. If this happens, it will be very difficult to capture the ball.
When you are approaching the ball, ensure to move your arm to your side, not your backside. Rotating your arm to your side can actually reduce your power and your ability to generate power. You need to have a strong grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip could be very dangerous because it can cause you miss the ball or it could cause you to overextend your arm. This could result in injury.
The angle of your stance is an important aspect to ensure the grip you have. Tennis beginners tend to be right-handed and wear their right hand spread across their body. For those who are just beginning, their left arm is typically carried over their body. Most coaches suggest using a neutral grip, or a style similar to a baseball position. By holding the club in a neutral posture will ensure that you don’t have a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Tennis players with open stance forehands tend to have problems with their forearms. Forehand players with an open stance are more likely to have problems with their grip. This problem can be solved by using neutral grip. Tennis players with open stance forehand must try to use a closed grip. 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 hand should hold the racket above their head and over their shoulders. The racket should be facing your crotch in case you are an right-handed player and the racket should be pointing towards your waist if you’re a left handed player. This will prevent the over-the-head swing or the under-shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing, keep your wrists straight and down your hips so that you don’t give either side of your body any space to swing.
