So I was having a conversation with a friend of mine, a teaching pro like myself, and we were talking about teaching the forehand to beginners. This is someone who has never played tennis before. We both agreed that teaching the take back of making a "loop" prior to the wrist being laid back and contact of a ball should not be taught until the student learns how to time the ball and just get a feel for the shot. Just laying the wrist right back before hitting the ball I think is a better way to teach the forehand to a beginner, as it keeps it simple and allows the student to easily time the ball as there is very little racquet movement. Once the student feels comfortable with this, then teaching the preparation of making a loop before hitting can be taught. Just wanted to know what some of the other teaching pros think of this. Do you guys teach this the same way?
