Tennis Forehand Transformation – Technique For Maximum Power and Control. In this video lesson, Top Tennis Training coach Simon Konov is working on his student’s forehand technique, the player struggles with timing, power and consistency on his forehand. The key elements that they focus on are:
Early preparation on the forehand with the racket and non-hitting separating earlier in the swing, if the left-hand stays on the racket for too long the player will struggle with timing the contact in front of the body.
Reaching a good power position on the forehand – if the non-hitting hand stays on the racket for too long the end result will be rushing during the forward phase of the swing but it also means the player doesn’t reach a good power position. The power position is where the non-hitting hand is across the body, almost in line with the baseline, the racket head is higher than the grip level creating leverage in the racket and hand and the body is coiled up, ready to uncoil on the forward phase of the swing.
Weight transfer and full rotation – Simon’s student struggles to open up the shoulders fully on the finish and this blocks the amount of power he can generate. By uncoiling fully on the forward phase you can generate maximum power and control of the shot plus the weight transfer becomes much easier when done correctly.

  1. Confused between VCORE 98 & VCORE PRO 97 310gm, please advise. My priority is easy acess to spin, wrist comfort and feel.

  2. Hello. During instruction at approx 9:20 you told student "upper body first, and then hips come." Wouldn't hips come first, then upper body? Am i off base in thinking the kinetic chain would start from the ground up, so hips turn first and upper body follows?
    Thanks in advance for any insight!

  3. Played tennis for the first time after a long, multi year break. I think I made all of these mistakes and more. Great video, Thanks!

  4. Thank you.very well Explained.But when The ball comes really fast from the opponent do we get the time to take in all positions which you taught.

  5. Min 9:09 I dont understand why, when you hit the ball with forehand in that case, the right foot overpass( to front)left foot. I thought the right foot have to finish in the same "líne" to left foot to avoid overotate the body…
    In this way I think you loose precisión and recovery step too…

  6. This lesson is very useful! Since a couple of year I lost the confidence in my forehand. I hope to find the right way even studying some good video as this one. Congrats!

  7. My coach has taught me well on the forehand drill and these few more pointers cannot wait to try them out thank you

  8. Eh. Like most tennis I feel like there are some things that are left unsaid, but through other clearly voiced instruction, are achieved. 2 things that I clearly saw in the beginning was, a subpar step and follow through into the ball, and his contact points were inconsistent and off target (for a decent impact). Though these two things were solved through explaining it in a different way. This is not a bash, but more of a thought on the training concept. I'm a coach as well.

  9. he is a very good couch. i start to play tennis and my couch is so boring. i learnd more in few minutes like my training with my couch.

  10. Fantastic, Simon. I have this present every time I play! I also loved the sound is getting better. Did you get a sleeve?

  11. a good exercise would be for you to put a saddle on him and ride him around the tennis court while screaming yee-haw!
