Tennis (1984 Video Game)

Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Everyone can play tennis, from beginners to the pros. Tennis players can be divided 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 struggle with their forehands as they aren’t aware of how to properly use the right muscles for their forehands, and in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with their backhands as they don’t know enough about how to position themselves to hit a nice backhand down the court. Therefore, these two important aspects of the game have to be addressed by those who want to be a pro at the game.

A successful tennis swing is contingent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the error of gripping the racket too tightly or loosely and end up hitting the ball too far or making a poor contact or even having the racket fall off while they swing at the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will provide you with the best chance to hit the ball in the right way every time.

Another important thing to remember is that your forehand’s path should be straight. As you approach the top of your follow-through, your forehand’s path should curve towards your top. This is called cut shot or high arc. A low arc or hook would start out with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine what kind of shots you should be practicing. For instance, if, for example, you are practicing a technique referred to as the bank shot, your forehand swing path will naturally shift towards the top as you move 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 as your arms move freely. Keep in mind that the shoulders must never leave the socket or your tennis racquet during your swing. It can make it very difficult to capture the ball if this occurs.

As you approach the ball, ensure to move your arm to your side, not your backside. By putting your arm to the side will weaken your ability to generate power and create a great backswing. You need a solid grip to control your arm’s movement. A weak grip can result in injuries. It can cause you lose the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could lead to injury.

Another important aspect in the proper grip is the angle of your stance. Tennis beginners are typically right-handed and wear their right hand slung across the body. The left arm of beginners is often carried over their body. Most coaches suggest holding the club with a neutral grip or in a manner similar to a baseball posture. A neutral grip will prevent you from swinging with an arm that is not dominant.

Tennis players that have an open stance forehands tend to have problems with their forearms. Forehands with an open stance tend to have issues with their grip. This issue can be resolved by holding the racket in neutral grip. Closed grips are best for tennis players who have an open forehand. This can be achieved by placing the racket behind your skull, your knees bent, and keeping your elbows locked.

Tennis players who have a non-dominant hand should swing the racket above their head and then over their shoulder. 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 help prevent either the over-the-head swing or the swing under the shoulder from happening. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, ensure you don’t give any part of your body too much space.
