Why does my shoulder hurt?

The Rotator Cuff

Are you experiencing pain in your shoulder? It may be because you're holding the racquet too tight before, during and after the shot. Try this. After you hit the ball, place the racquet in your non-racquet hand, and you'll be relaxing your "hitting" side between shots.

Remember, it's only necessary to hold the racquet "tight" when striking the ball, which occurs only 15% of the time while playing!
