Tennis is a hugely popular sport. It is a sport everyone can play, from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their skill level to hit the ball further and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Most often, tennis players struggle with hitting forehands because they do not know how to properly use the right muscles for their forehands or in what order to hit strong forehands. In the same way, tennis players struggle with backhands due to the fact that they aren’t aware about the proper way to set themselves up to hit a great backhand down the court. This is why these two essential aspects of the game have to be addressed by those who wish to excel at the game.
The grip is the most critical aspect of the successful tennis swing. Many new players make the mistake 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 are swinging at the ball. The best way to strike the ball correctly is to hold the racket in the proper position.
The other important factor to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should be straight from the beginning and then curve upwards towards the top of your body when you get to the top of your follow-through. This is referred to as cut or high arc shot. A low arc or hook would start out with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will influence the type of shots you must be learning. If you are working on the bank shot technique your forehand’s swing is likely to curve 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 even as your arms are free to move. While you swing, your shoulders should not move away from the socket of your racquet. It can make it very difficult to capture the ball in the event that this occurs.
When you approach the ball, ensure that your arm is directed towards your side, and not your backside. Moving your arm towards your side can reduce your power and your ability generate power. To allow your arm to rotate correctly it is essential to be able to grip the club. A weak grip could be very dangerous because it could cause you to lose the ball or can cause you to overextend your arm. This could result in injury.
Another key factor in the proper grip is the angle of your stance. Tennis beginners tend to be right-handed and have their right hand slung across the body. For beginners, their left arm is usually slung over their body. Most coaches recommend that you hold the club with an open grip or like a baseball position. By holding the club in a neutral position can ensure that you don’t have an arm that is not dominant during your swing.
Open stance forehand tennis players are more likely to have problems with their forearms. Forehand players with an open stance are more likely to have issues with their grip. One way to address this problem is to hold the racket with a neutral grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehand must try to have a closed grip. This can be achieved by placing the racket over your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players with a hand that is not dominant should swing the racket over their head and over their shoulder. If you’re a left handed player, the racket should face your crotch. If you’re a left-handed player, it should face towards your waist. This will stop the swing that is over the head or the swing under the shoulder from happening. Keep your wrists straight as you swing. Also, ensure that you don’t give any part of your body too much room.
