Week 2


Create More Forehand Consistency

Having a consistent and reliable forehand is a necessity if you want to win tennis matches. This week’s video lesson outlines one concept you can use to develop a consistent, repeatable forehand under pressure.

This concept is called, “keeping your head at contact.”

“Keeping your head at contact” is one of my most powerful tips that I help students with when the forehand breaks down.

All you have to do is keep your eyes at the point of contact long after the ball has left the strings.

You can see in the picture below, the eyes are focused completely on the contact point.

After you strike the ball, keep your head stable in the same position with the eyes fixated on the contact zone. Check out the head and eye position long after contact has been made. 

The last thing you want to do is to pull your head off when you hit the ball. The chances of mishitting or making an unforced error increases dramatically.

The next time you struggle with your forehand, try “keeping your head at contact” and watch your forehand improve quickly and easily.
