Default 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.

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

Default 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

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
Thank you for the good words Glenn
Always loved your posts, they are so funny, keep up the good work
You seem to have lots of free time to read every post on this forum. This is a record.

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).
