Tennis is among the most popular sports played 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 level to hit the ball farther and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Most times, tennis players struggle with hitting forehands because they aren’t aware of how to properly engage the correct muscles for their forehands or in which order to hit powerful forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with backhands due to the fact that they aren’t aware about the proper way to properly position themselves for a great 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 contingent on the grip you use. 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 having their racket slip when they swing at the ball. The best way to strike the ball correctly is to keep the racket correctly in the right position.

The other important factor to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should begin straight and then curve towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow through. This is called a high arc or cut shot. A low arc or hook starts with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will influence the type of shots you need to master. If you are practicing the bank shot technique the forehand swing path will naturally curve toward the top as you get closer to the ball.

Be sure to keep your shoulders squared with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with the ball which allows your arms to swing freely. Be aware that your shoulders should never leave the socket or your racquet when you swing. If this happens, it can be very difficult to catch the ball.

When you approach the ball, make sure that your arm is pointing from your side and not to your backside. Moving your arm to your side can actually reduce your power and your ability to generate power. To allow your arm to move properly it is essential to be able to grip the club. A weak grip could be extremely dangerous as it can cause you to miss the ball or it could cause you to extend your arm. This could result in injury.

Another crucial aspect of the correct grip is the angle you stand at. Most tennis beginners are right handed and have their right arm stretched across their body. The left arm of beginner players is usually slung over their body. Most coaches suggest holding the club with an even grip, or a style similar to a baseball posture. A neutral grip will stop you from hitting with an arm that isn’t dominant.

Forehand tennis players who have an open stance tend to have issues with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have problems with their grip. This issue can be resolved by using neutral grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehands should try to have a closed grip. This can be achieved by placing the racket in front of your skull, with your knees bent and your elbows locked.

Tennis players that have a non-dominant hand should swing the racket over their head and over their shoulders. If you’re a right handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will prevent the over-the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from happening. Keep your wrists straight as you swing. Also, make sure you don’t give any part of your body too much space.
