TIP OF THE MONTH : When to use an open-stance or a neutral stance?

The issue of which stance to use is one of the tennis forehand tips that every beginner player should look into.

Many players, especially beginners, are confused as to which is the best stance to use – the open stance or the neutral stance. There is no definite answer to this question since both stances have their own advantages and disadvantages – depending on the type of shot you are planning to execute. The open stance, for example, is the best strategy on baseline rallies; and when you are hitting an approach shot and you have a great chance to play at the net, then a neutral stance (where the feet are more closed) is ideal.

The bottom line here is whether you use an open stance or neutral stance, the most important thing is you are in proper balance during the shot.
