Hey, it’s Jeff here. In today’s video, we’re going to talk about how you can
improve your forehand. Now, there’s a lot of different ways
that you can hit a forehand, and a lot of different styles out there. Radek Stepanek, he swings on his forehand he’s going to finish up high every single time like this. I highly recommend that forehand.
It’s a forehand that Robert Lansdorp teaches especially to young kids. He teaches them how to drive through the ball. You want to swing, and you want to finish high like this. Okay, but there’s another forehand which is a more modern forehand which
I called “Turning the Hand.” Now, I learned that concept from a coach
when I was playing on the tour and basically, what you want to do is when you swing, depending on your grip style,
if you have a semi-Western grip, when you swing, you want to turn the hand like this. Okay, so I had a player today that was swinging and every time he swung,
he actually has a kind of a Western grip, he swings like this, and his racket ends up like this. But the key, if you have a Western or semi-Western, is to learn to turn your hand on the forehand. So, go ahead and try that out on your forehand.
If you have more of an Eastern forehand close to Roger Federer’s grip, your racket,
it’s going to finish a little bit flatter like this. But if you have a semi-Western,
I want you to work on turning the hand like this. It’s almost like a windshield wiper finish. If you’re missing the ball in the net doing this go ahead and turn your hand, but
finish higher when you do that. So, check that out, practice it on the court,
let me know what you think. Thanks a lot.
