Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Anyone can play tennis, from beginners to the pros. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their level to hit the ball more and higher than a backhand or forehand. Tennis players are often unable to hit forehands due to the lack of knowledge on how to effectively engage their muscles in order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due to insufficient knowledge about how to position themselves in order to hit a solid backhand down the court. These two areas are essential to the game and need to be addressed.
The grip is the most crucial aspect of an effective tennis swing. Many beginners make the mistake of gripping the racket to tightly or too loosely and end up not hitting the ball or making a poor contact or having the racket break off when they swing at the ball. The right way to hold the racket in the right way will provide you with the best chance to strike the ball correctly every time.
Another important thing to remember 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 cut shots or high arc. A low arc or hook will begin with the more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will affect the kind of shots you should be learning. If you’re practicing the bank shot technique, your forehand swing course will naturally curve towards the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Remember to always swing with your shoulders aligned with the ball. This will keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms are free to move. When you swing, your shoulders should not move away from the socket of your racquet. This can make it extremely difficult to take the ball back when this happens.
When approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is pointed towards your side, and not towards your backside. Moving your arm to your side can actually reduce your power and ability generate power. In order to get your arm to rotate properly you need to be able to grip the club. A weak grip can cause injuries. It can cause you lose the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could lead to injuries.
Another key factor in the correct grip is the angle you stand at. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their left hand spread across their body. The left arm of newbies is usually slung over their body. Most coaches advise that you hold the club with a neutral grip or similar to a baseball posture. A neutral grip will stop you from swinging with an arm that is not dominant.
Forehand tennis players with open stances tend to have issues with their forearms. If a player has an open stance forehand they tend to over-turn their wrists and not have a good grip. This problem can be solved by using an upright grip. Tennis players with open stance forehand must try to hold the racket with a closed grip. This can be achieved by placing the racket behind your skull, your knees bent, and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should move the racket in front of their head and above their shoulders. 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 head-over-head swing or the swing under the shoulder from occurring. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, ensure you don’t give any part of your body too much room.
