For me, having the racket handle close to the body at beginning of forward swing greatly helps on both wings. My swing feels more stable and can accelerate better when the racket handle starts close from my bode at the end of back swing/beginning of forward swing. Is this personal idiosyncrasy? If not, how does having the racket handle close to the body at beginning of forward swing helps? I'll keep doing it, but I just wanted to know if there is any bio-mechanical explanation for this.
