Getting more Power and Speed out of your Forehand

Posted by Five Seasons Family Sports Club on 2/7/19 2:19 PM

Having a strong and efficient forehand is one of the most crucial components of any good tennis game. By mastering this simple stroke, you can greatly increase your power and your overall ball speed. One of the best ways to increase your power and speed is by putting topspin on your shots. Topspin will make the ball accelerate upon contact with the ground, not only increasing your ball speed, but also making your shots vastly less predictable. Your forehand is one of the most frequently used shots in tennis so it is important to spend time building this fundamental skill.
