which grip do you guys use for a kick serve? i use a continental but ive heard for more spin use a eastern. then i read in this month's issue of Tennis mag that its supposed to be slightly left of continental (opposite of eastern) for more spin. what do you guys use and say?

You misread the correct answer: Eastern Backhand grip, is what you're after.

u can use continental or eastern backhand grip. continental has easier contact but less spin. eastern is slightly harder to get used to but u get more spin.
