need advice

I recently got into tennis and the thing is everytime i use dropshot by slicing the ball to create underspin my elbow hurts badly during the evening and the day after. Is it really natural to feel pain in such a way? or am i creating mistakes on using slice shot?

Re: need advice

Are you sure it is being caused by hitting slices and dropshots?

it is more than likely caused by a late contact point

That might well be the case. Try getting some lessons from a coach at the local club, or something. Mistakes in technique are important to be corrected, in the long run they can cause quite a bit of pain and injuries.

That's what I thought. It could be that the pain is caused by some other shot and you just feel it when hitting drop shots and slice. I would make sure that your serve and forehand are in order.

Obviously there's something wrong with your technique. Tennis shots should not consume your body a lot if you hit them with the right technique.
