I have appreciated reading the posts on this board. My tennis has improved because of it. My daughter went out for tennis at the local high school for the first time this past Spring. This summer we have been hitting the ball so she will get better and it will help her to feel more encouraged about the game. I have observed that her backhand strokes seem relaxed and look natural with good control and power. Her forehand looks stiff in her arm and she has the most trouble with it. The forehand has less control and less power than her backhand. Often the balls on the backhand are hit low and with a lot of power and control. But the forehand is hit higher with less power and control. The two strokes do not look like they are hit by the same person. I have hit many balls to her forehand side and that seems to have helped some. But she still looks stiff. It is as though her entire arm is locked in place almost from the shoulder down. Does anyone have any suggestions to help her with her forehand?
