Tennis Zones

Tennis is among the most played sports played in the world. Anyone can play tennis, from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their skill to hit the ball farther and higher than a forehand or backhand. Most times, tennis players struggle with hitting forehands because they do not know how to use the right muscles for their forehands, and in what order to hit strong forehands. Tennis players also struggle with their backhands due to insufficient knowledge about how to position themselves in order to hit a strong backhand down the court. Therefore, these two important aspects of the game have to be addressed by those who want to excel at the sport.

A successful tennis swing is contingent on your grip. Many new players make the mistake of holding their racket in a way that is too loose or tight and end up missing the ball and making poor contact or having their racket slip when they hit the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will give you the best chance to hit the ball accurately every time.

The other thing you need to keep in mind is that your forehand swing path should begin straight and then curve upwards towards the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow-through. This is known as cut or high arc shot. A hook with a low arc will have an natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These aspects will determine what type of shots you should be practicing. For instance, if, for example, you are practicing a technique referred to as the bank shot your forehand swing will naturally shift towards the top as you move closer to the ball.

Be sure to keep your shoulders squared with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders are always in contact with the ball, allowing your arms to move freely. Keep in mind that the shoulders should never be removed from the socket or racquet while you are swinging. This can make it extremely difficult to capture the ball if this occurs.

When approaching the ball, make sure that your arm is pointed from your side and not your backside. Rotating your arm on your side actually weakens your ability to generate energy and generate a good backswing. You must have a strong grip to control your arm’s movement. A weak grip could result in injuries. It can cause you miss the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could cause injuries.

The angle of your stance is also an crucial factor to ensure an effective grip. Tennis beginners are typically right-handed and wear their right hand draped across their body. The left arm of newbies is often slung across their body. Most coaches suggest holding the club with an even grip, or in a similar way to a baseball posture. A neutral grip will prevent you from swinging with an arm that is not dominant.

Open stance forehand tennis players are more likely to have issues with their forearms. When players with an open stance forehand, they tend to twist their wrists and do not have a good grip. This problem can be solved by holding the racket in an upright grip. Closed grips are best 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 hand that is not dominant should swing the racket above their head and then over their shoulder. If you’re a right-handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will prevent the swing that is over the head or the swing under the shoulder from happening. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, ensure you don’t allow any side of your body too much room.
