Start of Forward Swing

© 2012 Greg Letts, licensed to About.com, Inc.
The ball is moving towards the hitting zone, and the player has begun his forward swing.

Points to look for:

  • To begin the forward swing, the player has begun to push up with his legs, and the free arm has been swung upwards and to the player's left.
  • The racket is being swung forwards and upwards quickly around the elbow joint, with a little movement of the upper right arm as well.
  • The player is continuing to watch the ball closely.
  • There is a little body turn back to the player's left, but not all that much just yet.
