Hi, my name is Angelina Zdorovytska. Right now we're in the beautiful city of Los Angeles in Beverly Hills. I started playing tennis when I was 7 years old. I was ranked number 1 tennis player in the Ukraine. 350 in the world ranking. I run my own business; it's besttennisever.com. I train very good players. Also, I train beginners, intermediate players. Tennis is my life and my passion. I live for it and now I would like to talk to you about tennis. Let me show you how to hold the racquet. Your fingers have to be a little bit more spread out and your hand position has to be a little bit down below right here, because its gonna give you a little bit more speed when you're hitting the ball. However, if you feel comfortable and your wrist is a little bit weak, you can hold your racquet a little bit up here, a little bit higher up, because its also going to give you a little bit more control. And there are 2 different positions, so 2 different shots. We have the forehand side, where the racquet has to be a little bit face down, this way. For the backhand side, your racquet has to be face down this way.
