The Key Technical Elements of the Modern Forehand

Every great forehand has some common technical elements. Here are the key elements of the modern topspin forehand. Start with an Eastern or a Semi Western Grip; use an open or a neutral stance, take the racquet back by rotating the torso; the non dominant hand points to the side; let the racquet head drop pointing to the ground; bring the racquet to the ball from low to high by rotating the body, make contact in front of the body facing the net, the racquet continues moving up, through and around; the head stays still and the body remains in balance.
