Middle of Follow Through

(c) 2006 Greg Letts, licensed to About.com, Inc.
The ball has been struck, and the player is in the middle of his follow through.

Points to look for:

  • The playing arm has now been allowed to swing to the right once the maximum forward movement was reached, following the natural movement of the right arm.
  • The wrist has turned over, as show by the forehand rubber now facing the ceiling. Again, this is the natural movement of the wrist and forearm.
  • The free arm is still stationary.
  • The player is now out of the crouch, and is fairly upright.
