When playing tennis and the points start getting more and more intense...
The tendency is to start gripping the handle harder and tighter. You will do your body a lot of good if you learn to relax your grip as the point continues. Not only will this help the rest of your body to relax but you will save your arm from future injuries. Wrist injuries and Tennis Elbow will be less common in your Tennis career by loosening your grip while playing.
Trying to elevate your game to the next level?
Learning to use your legs more by using a squatting position is a great way. When at the Kitchen Line to prevent your opponent from pushing you back behind it try to squat down for those shots right off the bounce instead of taking a step backwards. This will keep you at the Kitchen line for more points and keep you from giving your opponent and easy target by hitting your toes on the very next shot.
