Thread: Your swing

  1. #1

    Your swing

    How do you swing your racquet?

    or in better words, where does your racquet end up after you swing it?

    is it like Davenport's forehand where she keeps on lifting up her arm and ends up around the shoulder? or does it end up in around your chest? waist?

    mine is around chest. yours?

    Re: Your swing

    I see a lot of the younger people (those in high school, college) finishing across their chest, similar to Federer.

    I am more traditional and usually end up high, catching my racquet in my left hand. If I really go to smack a forehand though I end up across my chest.
    Good Luck on the Court!!!

    In tennis the means always justifies the end.

    And if the end result is stuffing a tennis ball down someone's throat, I don't care if their racket is pointing to China and they're wearing a pink tutu.

    It absolutely matters where you finish your shot and how you finish your shot. An incorrect or inappropriate finish could botch your shot and can easily create pain or injuries. Everyone's appropriate finish is slightly unique to them and their style of stroke.
