World Tennis Rankings

Tennis is a very popular sport. Anyone can play tennis, from beginners to the pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their ability to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Most often, tennis players have difficulty when they hit forehands due to the fact that they do not know how to engage the proper muscles for their forehands or in what order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due lack of understanding about how to position themselves in order to hit a good backhand down the court. This is why these two essential areas of the game must to be addressed by those who want to be successful in the game.

A successful tennis swing is dependent 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 and making poor contact or letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will provide you with the best chance to strike the ball correctly every time.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should be straight. As you approach the top end of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should be curved towards your top. This is called cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low arc would have an natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors can affect the kind of shots you need to master. If you are practicing the bank shot technique, your forehand swing path will naturally curve toward the top as you get closer to the ball.

Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball when you swing. This will keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms swing freely. Remember that your shoulders should never move away from the socket or the racquet when you swing. This can make it extremely difficult to capture the ball when this occurs.

When you get close to the ball, be sure to rotate your arm from your side, 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. You need to have a strong grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip can result in injury. It can cause you lose the ball or cause you overextend your arms. This can result in injuries.

The angle of your stance is also an important factor in ensuring the grip you have. 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 advise that you hold the club in an open grip or similar to a baseball position. By holding the club in a neutral posture will aid in preventing an arm that is not dominant when you swing.

Forehand tennis players who have an open stance tend to have issues with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have issues with their grip. This issue can be resolved by holding the racket with an upright grip. Tennis players with an open stance forehand should attempt to have a closed grip. This can be achieved by placing the racket over 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 heads and over their shoulder. If you’re a right-handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, the racket should be pointing towards your waist. This will prevent the over-the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight as you swing. Also, ensure that you don’t allow any side of your body too much space.
