As I look over the courts I see many of you with what I call the “death grip”. Holding the racquet like there is no tomorrow!
Too tight of a grip tension is not good in tennis. In fact it is one of the top causes of tennis elbow and poor tennis shots.
On a scale of 1-5 (1 = loose, 5 = tight) grip your racquet at a 1-2 and “relax”. So next time you are out on the court, try hitting at a 1-2 tension and see what happens.
You will increase your racquet head speed and it will be easier on your arm.
Good luck and let us know how it works for you.
