A Forehand Drive in Tennis

 Q:   Ask a Question about A Forehand Drive in Tennis       
A Forehand Drive in Tennis by FW Editor

Fore hand drive should be most carefully studied as it is the opening of every offensive in the tennis. To all shots, there is some rule, which should be applied to reach the ball which is at the shortest distance away. While the service is facing the net the receiver should always await but when once they serve is started, he should attain his position to receive it with the body at the right angles to the net. It is made up of only one swing, which is continuous of the racquet. For this it is divided into three parts.

• The speed of the stroke is determined by the portion of the swing behind the body.
• The directions and, in conjunction with the weight shift from one foot to the other is determined by the portion immediately in front by the body, the pace of the shot.
• Top or slice, imparted to the ball is determined by the portion beyond the body comparable to the golfer's.

The slice shot is a totally different stroke and all these drives should be toped. The swing of the racquet must be flat and straight and its head should be on the line with the hand and the racquet and the whole arm should turn slightly over the ball. Thus it imparts the ball to the top spin. For all ground strokes, the hitting plan should be between the knees and the shoulders but the most approving plane is on a line with the wrist. You should always throw your weight on the shot and should never step away from the ball in driving cross court. With a locked wrist, you should make all the drives however, there is no movement in the true drive and the top spin imparts by the arm not the wrist. It is better for you to develop both the fore hand and the backhand drives but don't run around the backhand and especially in return of the service. Specialist strongly urges that don't develop one favorite shot and play nothing except that, and if you have a fair cross court drive, never use it in the practice but develop an equally fine straight shot. Always remember that the fast shot is the straight shot and the cross drive must be slow. There must be depth in the drives and the drive which is average should hit behind the service line, fine drive hit within 3 feet of the baseline, cross court drive should be shorter than the straight drive.

Again the most important thing always plays your drive:

1. To the net with the body sideways.
2. With long follows through the swing flat.
3. Like the ball is hit the weight shifting.
