Default Grips

I've been playing tennis for a year now and I know the names of the grips like "western, eastern, etc.." but what's the difference between them? I know the differences between my grips for forehand, backhand and shots like that so i can setup a shot but i don't know what the name of the grip that im using is or maybe im not even playing properly idk. I would like to be more knowledgeble in tennis. Name all the grips and give a list of links to sites, pictures or videos would help. I'm more of a visual learner. If you can't give visuals then explain thoroughly in words as best as you can.

I think they exagerate the differences between grips a little, but its should help.

Just a heads up, but as far as I see it, there is no such thing as a "proper" grip. There's a range of acceptable variation. If you already have a decent forehand, I see no reason to change it unless a qualified coach or knowledgeable person told you to.

oh yeah most defintely. no grip is proper but you could say they are considered proper. although after learning the grips i've found that im more consistent with a full western for my forehand.
