What forehand grip does Lleyton Hewitt use? Is it a semiwestern?

I think it's semi-western but I once saw a picture of him holding it western. I think.

i think he mainly uses western, but sometimes changes to sw depending on surface

If he does use western (which I'm not sure of), you'd think he'd do better on clay and not have a Wimbledon title. Go figure.

He doesnt adjust his grip to lower bounces and makes more errors. Off a flatter or lightly topspun ball he hits it pretty well off the forehand.

Good for you! I myself will be spending a lot more time on court and a lot less time on here soon! Besides, I'm growing pretty weary of what seems to be a decreasing amount of well informed, thoughtful people and an increasing amount of trolls and unjustifiably arrogant people who like to share their ignorance with themselves! ;-)

On a selfish level, I don't get much of out this board anymore. Occasionally i learn something in the racquets or strings section because I am not a gear head and I don't follow these things as closely....but then I'm not that interested in those things....much ado about nothing usually haha.

Sounds like you are in a tough place hehehe. Every forum on the net has trolls i think, i know what ya mean. I've been to many forums full of em. I'll have to start a thread soon, just gotta think of a good topic for us :)
