Tennis is a very well-known sport. Anyone can play tennis, from beginners to the pros. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their skill to hit the ball more and higher than a forehand or backhand. Tennis players are often unable to hit forehands due to a lack of knowledge about how to properly engage their muscles in is the best way to hit powerful forehands. In the same way, tennis players struggle with backhands due to the fact that they aren’t aware about how to properly position themselves for a perfect backhand on the court. Therefore, these two important areas of the game need to be addressed by those who want to be successful in the game.
A successful tennis swing is dependent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the error of holding the racket too tight or loose, and end up either not hitting the ball or making a poor contact or having the racket fall off while they swing at the ball. The best way to strike the ball correctly is to keep the racket correctly in the right position.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s path should be straight. When you reach the top end of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should curve towards your top. This is known as a cut shot or high arc. A low arc or hook would start out with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine what kind of shots you need to be practicing. If you are working on the bank shot technique your forehand’s swing is likely to curve towards the top as you get closer to the ball.
Remember to always swing with your shoulders in line with the ball. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms swing freely. Be aware that your shoulders must never leave the socket or your racquet while you are swinging. It could make it extremely difficult to capture the ball in the event that this happens.
When you are approaching the ball, be sure to move your arm to your side, not your backside. Rotating your arms to the side could decrease your power and ability generate power. You need to have a strong grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip can be extremely dangerous as it could cause you to be unable to catch the ball, or it can cause you to overextend your arm. This can result in injuries.
The angle of your stance is also an important factor in ensuring the grip you have. Tennis beginners are typically right-handed and wear their right hand draped across their body. For those who are just beginning the left arm is usually slung over their body. Most coaches suggest using an even grip, or in a similar way to a baseball grip. By holding the club in a neutral posture will aid in preventing a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Forehand tennis players with open stances tend to have problems with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have problems with their grip. This issue can be fixed by using neutral grip. Tennis players with open stance forehands should try to hold the racket with a closed grip. This can be done by placing the racket over your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players who are non-dominant handed should swing the racket over their head and over their shoulders. If you’re a right-handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will prevent the head-over-head swing or the under-shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, ensure you don’t allow any side of your body too much space.
