Let Tennis

Tennis is a very well-known sport. It is a sport anyone can play, from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their skill to hit the ball further and higher than a backhand or forehand. Most often, tennis players struggle with their forehands as they don’t know how to use the right muscles for their forehands or in what order to hit strong forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with backhands because they don’t know enough about the proper way to position themselves to hit a perfect backhand on the court. These two areas are vital to the game and must be addressed.

The grip is the most important aspect of a successful tennis swing. Many beginners make the mistake of holding their racket too tight or loosely and end up missing the ball, making poor contact or letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. The best way to hit the ball correctly is to keep the racket in the proper position.

The other thing you need to be aware of is that your forehand swing path should begin straight and then curve upwards towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow-through. This is known as a high arc or cut shot. A hook with a low arc will begin with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will affect the type of shots you must be learning. For instance, if you are practicing a technique known as the bank shot, your forehand’s swing path will naturally turn toward the top as you move closer to the ball.

Always keep your shoulders aligned with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with your ball and allow your arms to swing with ease. While you swing, your shoulders must not leave the socket of your racquet. If this happens, it could be very difficult to catch the ball.

When you are approaching the ball, be sure to rotate your arm from your side, not your backside. The arm that is rotated on your side actually weakens your ability to generate power and create a great backswing. In order to get your arm to rotate properly you need to hold a firm grip on the club. A weak grip could be dangerous since it could cause you to be unable to catch the ball, or it could cause you to extend your arm. This could cause injury.

Another key factor in the correct grip is the angle of your stance. Most tennis beginners are right-handed and carry their right arm across their bodies. The left arm of newbies is often carried over their body. Most coaches suggest using a neutral grip, or a style similar to a baseball position. A neutral grip can stop you from hitting with an arm that is not dominant.

Tennis players who have open stance forehands tend to have issues with their forearms. When players with an open stance forehand, they tend to twist their wrists and do not have a proper grip. One way to address this problem is to hold the racket with an even grip. Tennis players with an open stance forehand should attempt to hold the racket with 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 have a hand that is not dominant should swing the racket over their heads and over their shoulders. The racket should point towards your crotch if you are a right handed player and the racket should be pointing towards your waist if you are left-handed. This will stop the over-the head swing and the under-the shoulder swing from happening. When you swing keep your wrists straight and lower your hips to ensure that you do not give either side of your body any space to swing.
