  • I have no idea about math and belive the sample size is too small to make this assumption for AZ.

Since Zverevs new (since last summer) racquet is designed in a way that makes it very easy to distinguish both sides, I realized that he always holds it in the same way. FH, you will always see the teal side pointed to the back of the court; BH, the pink side points to his back.

Since I personally also hold my racquet in the same way all the time, I now wonder how common this is among pros. Here's also a practice video of Zverev where this issue becomes really visible (he does it all the time obviosly and not just here).

I don't really follow.

What are the differences / benefits here?

There's nothing behind it, just think it is interesting that he always grabs the racquet with the same side pointing in the same direction.
