What is it called when a player hits the ball with the front of the racket?

There are two sides to the stringing pattern within the head of a tennis racket. The side of the stringing pattern which is used to strike the tennis ball is called the racket face. An easy way to remember this is to think of the racket "face" as having eyes. Eyes are a normal part of a face. The eyes of the racket face must see the approaching tennis ball, just prior to string-to-ball contact. I always use a black permanent marker pen to draw a face with eyes, nose, and a mouth on my teaching tennis racket.

By swinging 'through' the ball, letting the racket stop only when it's above your shoulder (instead of only hitting at the ball) you give the ball much more speed. Besides, finishing that swing gives you much more control over its direction. Same thing with golf, by the way.

What is the best way to hold a tennis racket if you are a left handed?

As a player who is left handed, I find it best top hold the racket with your left hand towards the bottom of the handle area, or in some cases, I tend to edge my hand closer towards the middle of the handle. Do NOT hold it near the top, as you are far more likely to hurt your hadnd that way, as the pressure from hitting the ball hard will jolt your hand, and that can sometimes turn quite nasty.

How do you hit a topspin forehand in tennis?

The most basic way to hit a topspin shot off the forehand in tennis are these following steps: 1. Get in ready position, which is: both hands on the racket facing forward 2. Turn side ways as the ball approaches and slowly let your left hand drop away from the racket 3. Have your racket facing straight back (as if it were a mirror and you were trying to see the back of your head) have your racket extended back at shoulder height. 4. Bend your knees and smoothly swing your racket down to the ground 5. Then pull it up as you receive contact, with your arm once again straight out. 6. Slightly turn your wrist to go over the top of the ball, then follow through across your left shoulder. Tips: Be sure that your are always going forward and stepping into the shot. Never step away like off to the side, because that takes away your power. Remember that your not going to get enough power by just using your arm: bend your knees then step through. You can tell when your not getting topspin because the ball will usually spin sideways when it's not correctly hit. Topspin is the keyword in this shot because it literally is going over the top of the ball.

Why are tennis players called seeds?

Tennis players are called 'seeds' as this is the way that they rank tennis players in knockout tournaments. During events such as Wimbledon, a computer analyses all the data from the competitors, and ranks them accordingly, i.e. it looks at win/loss% and so on. These rankings are called seeds, and the lower the number, the better the seed, so If you are seeded 1st, then you are the favourite to win the tournament.
