like the bus crash, those awake die... those asleep survive... why? tension... thats the real injury causer...

i can suggest something to help you if you like...?

this can happen with extreme western grips from a young age when the bounce of the ball is comparatively high to a young body... it should be, under guidance, corrected at a later age...

I play with a pretty extreme western grip and have no problems with it.

With low slices you just need to get down to it and whip it up with a lot of wrist.

i played a person who used this grip, he had some crazy whip over his forehand and hit it pretty hard and reasonably topspun. Nice guy, but didn't like playing against variety.

Finally some talk about my missing hero, Alberto Berasategui. Back in the days I used to buy the clothes he was wearing and also had the same PC600 racket which at that time was killing my game since i was still pretty much a beginner.

Here are some nice videos from the tube showing our hero playing:

VS Courier in Nice, France: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_QaR4NFpgs

VS Agassi in AO 1998: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YotDZDArC3M

Vamos Alberto!

Shame he had to retire! From what I remember he had some kind of sickness that made his legs cramp very fast.
