Tennis Tip: Racquet Angle

The major thing that determines the height and direction of the ball is the angle of the racquet. The swing has some effect on that, but not nearly as much, and body or feet position have nothing to do in that regard.

The success of the top players is due to their heightened awareness of the racquet position at impact time. Just a small angle variation, and the results vary quite dramatically.

With so much movement around the court, the position of the racquet is paramount and it needs to be developed at an early stage.

Improve your racquet handling with Oscar's videos (DVDs) and book. Learn to develop your memory as an athlete. Even what we call mechanics can be stored at an instinct level. Like Oscar says, play tennis "with your hands".
