.
.
1. Ready position. Wait in your forehand grip, have your elbows away from your body, and have the tip of your racket pointing slightly up. .
.
2. Turn with both hands on the racket for a unit turn. Tip of the racket should be slightly higher than your head with the racket on edge to your opponent (opponent can’t see the strings). Non hitting arm should be up and parallel to the net for a great body coil. .
.
3. Drop your racket below contact and tilt your strings slightly down to the ground. Butt cap will point at the ball at this point. .
.
4. Swing up to the ball making sure your strings are vertical at contact. You non hitting hand should be higher than contact to help allow your hips to turn. .
.
5. Extend out toward your target keeping your head still as to not negatively affect your shot. .
.
6. Finish over your opposite shoulder with the butt cap pointing over the net.

  • 🔥PLEASE WATCH ALL 3 VIDEOS!!!!🔥
You must understand grips to play your best tennis. This can be a complicated subject, but I wanted to help you understand more fully how and where to place your hand on the racket. If you have any questions please comment below and I’ll answer them. 👊🏻

  • 🎉Practice serving while wearing a birthday hat. Knocking off the hat will give you the throwing motion you want on your serve. 🎉

  • The serve is the most important shot in tennis. And knocking a birthday hat off of your head is the most important technical move to practice to fix your serve. Go to the store, plunger a birthday hat, and knock off the hat while serving. Coaches...this is how you fix your student’s inability to use a throwing motion during their serve.

  • Every once in a while try hitting behind your opponent when they recover to the center after returning serve. Most players think heading into the open court is the best play, but hitting behind your opponent often wrong for them and either results in a winner or a very weak short ball that you can attack.

  • Getting to the net is a critical part of winning more matches. Most players don’t go to the net nearly enough (even the pros). Follow these three times to go forward and you’ll win more matches.

  • Please follow @tennistv 
For a better drop shot or drop volley, try making the ball peak on your side of the court. The ball will begin dropping as it crosses the net resulting in the ball landing very short. 👍

  • Credit to @tennistv 😉Not everyone is a seasoned tennis player so it’s vital to explain basic concepts. 🎾It’s critical when playing singles that you bisect your opponent’s two best shots to either side of you. And you’ll do this by standing slightly on the OPPOSITE side as compared to your opponent. Rarely is the center of the baseline the center of where you opponent can hit the ball. Understanding this court positioning concept can really help improve your court coverage in singles.

  • Are you a one hander who struggles with your return of serve? Try these techniques to help improve this critical shot:
.
.
🎾Follow the classic return of serve order events...split step, turn, hit, step. .
.
🎾Finish with your chest to the side, your non hitting arm moving back as a counterweight (that’s what keeps your chest sideways), and your racket at eye level angles to the appropriate side of the “V” (lefties have your racket angled to the right...righties have your racket angled left).
.

🎾Good luck!!!
