The purpose of this study was to compare the electromyographycal responses between triceps medialis and biceps brachii muscles while performing forehand drive in tennis. Seven male (age = 21.12 ± 2.31 years) all India university level tennis players were selected by using purposive sampling. The maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) was recorded with the help of biograph infinity software (EMG). Surface ElectroMyoGraphy (SEMG) was used for measuring muscle (Triceps Medialis and Biceps Brachii) electrical activity that occurs during forehand drivein tennis. Each subject performs ten trails, out of the several trails the mean value of first three correct trails were selected for the analysis. The results of the study reveal that, Biceps Brachii shows higher muscles activation than the Triceps medialis muscles while performing the forehand drive in tennis.Significant differences was observed concluding that the biceps brachii muscles plays a more dominant role while performing forehand drive in tennis than triceps medialis.
