Tennis is among the most popular sports played in the world. It is a sport everyone can play, from beginners to professional. There are two major categories of tennis players. They are classified based on their ability to hit the ball further than a backhand or forehand. Most times, tennis players struggle when they hit forehands due to the fact that they don’t know how to properly use the right muscles for their forehands and in which order to hit powerful forehands. Tennis players also struggle with their backhands because of insufficient knowledge 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 excel at the game.
A successful tennis swing is contingent on your grip. Many new players make the mistake of holding the racket too tight or loosely and then miss the ball making poor contact, or letting their racket slide when they hit the ball. The best method to hit the ball correctly is to keep the racket correctly in the right position.
The other important factor to remember is that your forehand swing path should start out straight and then curve towards the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow through. This is called cut shots or high arc. A low arc or hook would start out with a more natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will determine what kind of shots you should be practicing. If you’re practicing the bank shot technique, your forehand swing path will naturally curve toward the top as it gets closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball whenever you swing. This helps to keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms are free to move. Remember that your shoulders should never move away from the socket or the tennis racquet during your swing. It could make it extremely difficult to take the ball back if this occurs.
When approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is directed towards your side, and not your backside. By putting your arm on your side can weaken the ability of your arm to generate power and create a great backswing. To allow your arm to move properly, you must have a strong grip on the club. A weak grip can cause injuries. It can cause you not to hit the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could cause injuries.
The angle of your stance is an important aspect to ensure an effective grip. Most tennis beginners are right handed and have their right arm stretched across their body. The left arm of beginner players is often slung across their body. The majority of coaches advise holding the club with an even grip, or a style similar to a baseball position. A neutral grip will prevent you from swinging with an arm that is not dominant.
Tennis players that have an open stance forehand are more likely to have problems with their forearms. When players with an open stance forehand, they tend to twist their wrists and do not have a proper grip. A great solution to this issue is to hold the racket with an even grip. Closed grips are the best choice for players with an open forehand. This can be achieved by putting the racket behind your head while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players who have a non-dominant hand should move the racket in front of their head and above their shoulders. The racket should point towards your crotch if you are an right-handed player and should be facing your waist if you are a left handed player. This will prevent the over the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight, and keep them down your hips so that you don’t give either side of your body any space to swing.
