Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Everyone can play tennis from beginners to the pros. There are two major types of tennis players. They can be classified according to their ability to hit the ball further than a forehand or backhand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands because of the lack of knowledge on how to properly engage their muscles and what order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due to lack of understanding about how to position themselves in order to hit a strong backhand down the court. Therefore, these two important areas of the game must to be addressed by those who wish to be successful in the game.

A successful tennis swing is dependent on your grip. Many beginners make the error of gripping the racket to tightly or loosely and end up not hitting the ball or making an incorrect contact or even having the racket fall off while they swing at the ball. Holding the racket the right way will give you the best opportunity to hit the ball in the right way every time.

The other important factor to remember is that your forehand swing should begin straight and then curve towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow through. This is known as cut shot or high arc. A hook with a low arc will begin with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will determine what type of shots you should be practicing. For example, if you are practicing a technique known as the bank shot your forehand swing path will naturally move towards the top as you get closer to the ball.

Keep your shoulders in line with the ball whenever you swing. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms move freely. Keep in mind that the shoulders must never be removed from the socket or tennis racquet during your swing. It can make it very difficult to take the ball back in the event that this occurs.

When you get close to the ball, ensure to rotate your arm from your side, not from your backside. Rotating your arm on your side actually weakens your ability to generate energy and produce a strong backswing. You need a solid grip to control the rotation of your arm. A weak grip could be very dangerous because it can cause you to miss the ball or it can cause you to overextend your arm. This could lead to injury.

The angle of your stance is another important factor in ensuring the grip you have. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their left hand spread across their body. The left arm of beginners is often slung across their body. Most coaches suggest using an even grip, or a style similar to a baseball position. The club should be held in a neutral posture will ensure that you don’t have an arm that is not dominant when you swing.

Tennis players with open stance forehands tend to have issues with their forearms. If a player has an open stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists, and they do not have a good grip. This issue can be fixed by holding the racket with neutral grip. Closed grips are the best choice for tennis players who have an open forehand. You can achieve this by placing the racket on your skull, your knees bent and your elbows locked.

Tennis players who are non-dominant hand should hold the racket above their head and above their shoulders. If you’re a left handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a left-handed player, it should face towards your waist. This will prevent the swing that is over the head or the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, make sure you don’t give any side of your body too much space.
