How to Hit a Forehand in Tennis
The following how-to guide provides a step-by-step of how to hit a forehand shot like the professionals. These simple tips should help teach the novice player proper technique or help experienced players refresh what they already know.
Step 1- Pivot and Shoulder Turn-
From Ready position, which means that feet are pointing foreward, parallel with shoulders, and knees bent, pivot with you outside foot/your dominant foot and transfer weight to that foot. This foot (right foot for righties and left for lefties) should be flat and loaded up with weight. With the less dominant foot, turn the foot and raise it so that you are on the ball of your foot. By opening hips during the pivot, the player enables himself to bring the shoulders around completely so that the racket moves back for a proper forehand.
Step 2- Take Back The Racket-
Once the player has made a proper pivot and shoulder turn, he is ready to take back the racket. During the Pivot and Shoulder Turn, most players hold the racket firmly with their dominant hand and support it with the less dominant hand. When taking the racket back, the player brings the racket to about shoulder height and directly in line with the shoulder. In other words, the opponent should not be able to see the dominant arm when looking across the court but should be able to see the racket pointed up. During this motion, the player releases the supporting hand. Do not let the supporting hand drop down. Instead, the supporting hand should come up to shoulder height and extend in front of the body. This arm will be completely visible to the opponent.
Step 3- Swing to Contact-
Now that the player has pivoted, turned the shoulder, and taken the racket back, he is ready to swing through to contact. First, the player will need to push off the dominant foot and raise the heel on that foot. When doing this, the non-dominant foot, which formerly had a raised heel, will drop flat to the ground. After completing this footwork, the player will be prepared to generate considerable force with the lower body while swinging. To swing to contact, the player will need to first bring the head of the racket down behind the body before swinging forth. A common mistake beginning tennis players make is bringing the racket directly from above the shoulders to contact. Without bringing the racket down first, the player loses control over how far and where the ball will fly. A tip to remember is that swinging to contact is much like tracing a "C" with the racket before making contact (with a flat racket face) a little in front of the body.
Step 4-Follow Through-
From the contact point, the player arrives at the last-but certainly not least important-step of the forehand swing. To follow through, the player extends the arm out in the direction that he is hitting the tennis ball and across the body. While bringing the arm across the body, the player will rotate the hand toward him. A helpful analogy to remember for this motion involves looking at a wristwatch. The rotation of the hand should be such that the player appears as though he is checking the time on his wristwatch. Taking this action will give the player an ability to generate spin that he would be unable to do otherwise. After the racket reaches the completion of the follow through, the player should return it to the supporting hand and prepare for the next swing.
As with any sport, tennis requires concentration and repetition. Do not expect to be playing on the ATP immediately. Be patient with the knowledge that learning a proper forehand is more than just knowing the steps. It requires practice and the development of muscle memory. Once you do practice and perfect this forehand, you will be ready to learn the backhand.
