Choosing the right grip

Hello, I would like to know how I can choose my grip, in Europe we use centimeter, not inches and every grip is measured in inches.

Re: Choosing the right grip

when you hold a racket you want to have a small gap between the edge of your palm and your fingers

Re: Choosing the right grip

most rackets say the grip size on the butt cap and some will also say it on the throat, just above the grip

No surprise a Nadulltard can't even choose a grip. :retard: How was it to finally hold a racket?

Well, I am following tennis and tennis history, never claimed to know how you play tennis. If you want to know I felt comfortable even the first time I played

He sounds a bit like an ass to me though

I never really cared about what grip I'm using, just on the backhand I tried some different grips. I ended up with someting similar as Federer (yes I use a one hander).
