Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Everyone 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 further and higher than a backhand or forehand. Most times, tennis players struggle with hitting forehands because they aren’t aware of how to engage the correct muscles for their forehands or in what order to hit strong forehands. In the same way, tennis players struggle with backhands because they do not know enough about the proper way to properly position themselves for a nice backhand down the court. These two areas are essential to the game and must be addressed.
The grip is the most critical aspect of the successful tennis swing. Many beginners make the mistake of holding the racket too tight or loose and end up hitting the ball too far, making improper contact, or having the racket fall off when they swing at the ball. The best way to strike the ball correctly is to keep the racket in the correct position.
The other thing you need to remember is that your forehand’s swing path should begin straight and then curve towards the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow-through. This is called cut shot or high arc. A hook with a low arc will have a natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors can affect the kind of shots you must be learning. If you are practicing the bank shot technique the forehand swing is likely to curve towards the top as you get closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball. This helps to keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms are free to move. While you swing, your shoulders should not leave the racquet’s socket. This can make it extremely difficult to take the ball back in the event that this occurs.
When approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is pointed towards your side, and not to your backside. Rotating your arm to the side could reduce your power and your ability generate power. You must have a strong grip to control your arm’s movement. A weak grip can result in injury. It could cause you to not to hit the ball, or cause you to overextend your arms. This could result in injury.
The angle of your stance is also an important factor in ensuring the grip you have. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their right hand slung across the body. The left arm of newbies is often slung across their body. Most coaches recommend that you hold the club in the neutral grip or similar to a baseball position. The club should be held 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 issues with their forearms. If players have an open-stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists and not have a good grip. A great way to solve this issue is to hold the racket with a neutral grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehand must try to use a closed grip. This can be achieved by putting the racket behind your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players who have a non-dominant handed should swing the racket above their head and over their shoulders. The racket should point towards 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 and the under-the shoulder swing from happening. When you swing keep your wrists straight and down your hips, making sure you do not give either side of your body any room to swing.
