I don't know if it had an official grip title, it was fairly close to continental. I only play club level, it was very poor technically so I didn't get found out as much as I should have, but I recently decided I want to step up my game and was advised to go Eastern which will help me long term. I'm not finding it such an easy transition though
Who would say you actually play ballet tennis?
I learned it eastern from the start, but I hit it continental sometimes.
Wow where do i start? I inconsistent in genereal i'll play well for a while, but then play bad. I'm also unsure of what playing style I want to play, sometimes I serve and volley, sometimes i'll play passively, sometimes I'll play aggressively from the basline so maybe that has something to do with it.
Oh, and butting in Glenn and Adee=gee's conversation, is it common to see one-handed backhands with semi-western westernish grips?
I find the same problem sometimes... I want to play aggressively most of the time but I rarely find a compromise between going to the net and ballbashing, ending up in some point right in the middle, playing kinda passively.
Well, the eastern backhand grip = western forehand grip. If you mean western backhand, yeah, my coach when he played tournaments he used to hit semi-western on the backhand grip.
