Tennis is among the most popular sports in the world. Tennis is a sport that anyone can play from beginners to 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 times, tennis players struggle when they hit forehands due to the fact that they don’t know how to properly engage the correct muscles for their forehands, and in which order to hit powerful forehands. Tennis players also have trouble with their backhands due to lack of understanding about how to position themselves in order to hit a good backhand down the court. These two areas are crucial to the game and need to be addressed.
The grip is the most crucial aspect of a successful tennis swing. Many beginners make the error of gripping the racket too tight or loose, and end up either not hitting the ball, making improper contact, or having the racket fall off while they swing at the ball. Holding the racket the right way will provide you with the best chance to hit the ball accurately every time.
The other thing you need to remember is that your forehand’s swing path should be straight from the beginning and then curve towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow through. This is called cut shots or high arc. A low arc or hook will begin with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine the type of shots you should be practicing. For instance, if, for example, you are practicing a technique known as the bank shot your forehand swing will naturally move towards the top as you get closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball when you swing. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with the ball which allows your arms to swing with ease. Remember that your shoulders should never move away from the socket or the racquet while you are swinging. If this happens, it can be very difficult to take the ball back.
When you are approaching the ball, make sure that your arm is directed from your side and not to your backside. Rotating your arm to your side can actually reduce your power and your ability generate power. To allow your arm to rotate correctly, you must have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip can lead to injury. It could cause you to not to hit the ball, or cause you to overextend your arms. This can result in injury.
Another crucial aspect of the correct grip is the angle you stand at. Most tennis beginners are right-handed and carry their right arm across their body. The left arm of beginners is often carried over their body. Most coaches recommend that you hold the club in an open grip or similar to a baseball position. A neutral grip can stop you from swinging with an arm that isn’t dominant.
Forehand tennis players who have an open stance are more likely to have problems with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have issues with their grip. A great solution to this issue is to hold the racket with a neutral grip. Tennis players with an open stance forehand should attempt to use a closed grip. You can achieve this by placing the racket behind your skull, keeping your knees bent and your elbows locked.
Tennis players who have a non-dominant handed should swing the racket above their head and above their shoulders. The racket should face your crotch if you are left handed and should be facing your waist if you’re left handed. This will help prevent either the head-over-head swing or the under-shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight and down your hips, making sure you don’t give either side of your body any space to swing.
