Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Tennis is a game that everyone can play, from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be divided into two broad categories based on their skill level to hit the ball further and higher than a backhand or forehand. Tennis players are often unable to hit forehands because of inexperience with how to properly engage their muscles in to do to hit forehands that are strong. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with backhands due to the fact that they aren’t aware about how to set themselves up to hit a great 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 dependent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the error of holding the racket too loose or tight and then miss the ball and 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 in the correct position.
Another important thing to remember is that your forehand’s path should be straight. As you get closer to the top of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should curve towards your top. This is known as cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low arc would start out with the 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 will naturally shift towards the top as you get closer to the ball.
Keep your shoulders in line with the ball as you swing. This will keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball as your arms move freely. Remember that your shoulders must not be removed from the socket or racquet when you swing. This can make it extremely difficult to capture the ball if this occurs.
When you get close to the ball, be sure to move your arm to your side, not from your backside. Moving your arm towards your side can decrease your power and ability to generate power. You must have a strong grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip could result in injuries. It can cause you lose the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This can result in injury.
The angle of your stance is also an crucial factor to ensure the grip you have. Tennis beginners tend to be right-handed and have their left hand draped across their body. For those who are just beginning the left arm is typically carried over their body. Most coaches recommend that you hold the club in an open grip or similar to a baseball position. Holding the club in a neutral position will aid in preventing a non-dominant arm when you swing.
Forehand tennis players who have an open stance tend to have issues with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have problems with their grip. One way to address this problem is to hold the racket using an even grip. Tennis players with an open stance forehand must try to use a closed grip. This can be accomplished by putting the racket behind your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players that have a hand that is not dominant should swing the racket over their head and over their shoulders. If you’re a left handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should face towards your waist. This will stop 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 to ensure that you do not give either side of your body any space to swing.
