More on Downswing

  • To commence the downswing, create an arc by pulling the racket down and through.
  •  After the initial movement of the racket head slightly behind the body, it should establish a trajectory which is reasonably straight and is in the direction the shot to be made.
  • During this time the racket head should remain very open. As racket/ball impact approaches, the forearm will commence a rotation (pronation/supination) which increases racket head speed considerably. The racket head will start to close as the forearm rotates.
  • During the downswing, body weight should move from the back foot to the front foot.
