Re: overgrips half-way on handle!

if you have a one handed backhand, and if your poor and don't wanna waste grip you can get 2 for 1.

No, it is to do with the single hander, but its if you want it thicker, not to do with your income. Reza, you know so little !

Corretja,David Sanchez^^
Like someone said,when you play a onehanded you dont need a full grip..

Topspin is the way to hit

Re: overgrips half-way on handle!

Yeah Alex Corretja does, noticeably. Jim does a bit, because he is single hander
