Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Tennis is a game that anyone can play from beginners to professionals. There are two primary categories of tennis players. They can be classified according to their ability to hit the ball more than a backhand or forehand. Tennis players typically struggle to hit forehands because of inexperience with how to properly engage their muscles and what is the best way to hit powerful forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with backhands because they aren’t aware about the proper way to position themselves to hit a great backhand down the court. This is why these two essential areas of the game need to be addressed by those who wish to be successful in the game.
The grip is the most crucial aspect of an effective tennis swing. Many beginners make the error of gripping the racket too tightly or too loosely, and end up either missing the ball or making a poor contact or having the racket break off when they are swinging at the ball. Holding the racket the right way will give you the best opportunity to hit the ball in the right way every time.
The other thing you need to remember is that your forehand swing should be straight from the beginning and then curve toward the top of your body when you get to the top of your follow-through. This is known as cut shot or high arc. A hook with a low arc would have a natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine what kind of shots you should be practicing. For example, if you are practicing a technique that is known as the bank shot your forehand’s swing path will naturally move towards the top as you get closer to the ball.
Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball as you swing. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with your ball which allows your arms to swing freely. Keep in mind that the 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 happens.
When you approach the ball, ensure that your arm is directed from your side and not to your backside. Moving your arm to your side can actually decrease your power and ability to generate power. To allow your arm to rotate properly it is essential to be able to grip the club. A weak grip can cause injury. It can cause you not to hit the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could lead to injury.
The angle of your stance is also an crucial factor to ensure a good grip. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their left hand draped across their body. For beginners the left arm is typically carried across their body. Most coaches recommend using an even grip, or a style similar to a baseball posture. A neutral grip can stop you from hitting with an arm that is not dominant.
Tennis players with open stance forehand tend to have problems with their forearms. Forehands with an open stance tend to have problems with their grip. This issue can be fixed by using an upright grip. Closed grips are ideal for tennis players who have an open forehand. This can be done by placing the racket on your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.
Tennis players who have a non-dominant hand should hold the racket above their head and above their shoulders. The racket should be facing your crotch in case you are a right handed player and should be facing your waist if you are left-handed. This will prevent the over the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from occurring. Keep your wrists straight when you swing. Also, ensure you don’t give any part of your body too much space.
