View Full Version : trouble with new grip....

10-06-2007, 05:51 PM
i have been playing tennis for about 9 months now and i had to switch a week ago from a western forehand to a grip that is between a eastern and a semi-western because the western gave me bad tennis elbow... i was wondering if i could get any tips on trying to hit this kind of forehand.

how do you swing, up and down or left to right? If up and down then try going left to right instead with the semi-western or eastern.

i swing left to right... i guess... but i just have trouble trying to put pace on it... i have great direction just not enough pace

anymore tips i can get would be great... i also though about switching to a heavier racquet... cause i played with one and it gave me more control and depth... i dunno
