Hi everyone . Welcome to Easy Tennis. I’m Coach Emre. In this video, I’m gonna explain forehand technique in 2 parts Part 1 is about forehand used in short distances. Hold your racket in your forehand grip. It’s eastern, semi-western or western. If you don’t have any idea about forehand grips you can watch my forehand grips video. We don’t use the same swing in every part of the court I mean the swing we use when we’re close to the net is different than the swing we use when we’re behind the baseline. So when you’re close to the net and if you don’t want the ball go far You don’t need to take your racket behind you(backswing) Your racket should be synchronized with the ball. I mean as the ball goes up your racket goes up and down and down the same the ball bounces and your racket goes forward to contact the ball in front of you. Now part 2 Be in ready poasition racket head higher than the grip level For details I have a video about ready position. As the ball goes off your opponent’s strings you should decide your shot forehand, backhand whatever as soon as possible. Starting from the upper body you should turn to your right left hand waits the ball that’s for balance now my chest is facing to the right fence then the racket lag this motion is called “racket lag” my chest turns forward my wrist and my racket follows my turn like this then go to the contact point from low to high start pronation before the contact point. Contact the ball in front of you Brush the ball up and then follow through At contact my chest is facing forward at last, my chest is facing to the left fence. At contact, my racket’s handle is parallel to the ground the racket’s face is perpendicular to the ground you shouldn’t contact like this or this or this or this These are wrong. Your swing should be from low to high from low to high If your ball goes too high you might have opened your racket face at the contact to the ball. If you can’t go over the net you might have not swung from low to high This motion of forearm is called “pronation”. This motion You should start pronation before the contact point. That will create topspin. And then follow through Let the racket go after the contact point Don’t stop it don’t do this Let it go and it will stop naturally Turning your body forward and transmitting your forward momentum to the ball this will create more power but if you are out of balance I mean like this or this then you can’t do it Your spine should be upright. To recab, decide your shot as soon as possible turn to your right left hand here waits the ball for balance racket head higher than the grip level then the racket lag now my chest is facing to the right fence then my chest turns forward the butt cap of the racket pointing to the oncoming ball my wrist in the shape of “L” go to the contact point from low to high start pronation before the contact point and then follow through. Let it go and it will stop naturally. At last, my chest is facing to the left fence. That’s all for this video.
