racket arm continues with internal rotation of the shoulder, pronation of the elbow and flexion
of the wrist. The racket ends up pointing down toward the
ground and you land on the front foot (Figure 1-12b).
The racket arm then adducts across your
body (Figure 1-12c and 1-12d). The back foot comes forward, landing in the court going toward

The muscles that adduct the racket across
your body are the Pectoralis Major and Anterior Deltoid.
