Anyone know Federer's return of serve grip? Right after he spins his racquet. To me, it looks like he goes Continental, then changes accordingly. Comments?

Is this because you want to know just for knowledge or actually go out and try it? If you need help with your return game wrong thread. I'm pretty sure it depends what wing the serve is going to.

would it really matter prince of tennis? maybe he just wants to analyze federer's return game. so go fk off now.

he starts out with continental and blocks some serves back with that. he might change to an eastern forehand grip if the ball is coming to the forehand. if coming to the backhand, he will switch slightly to an eastern backhand grip, but very slightly.

Looks to me like he just switches to his normal backhand or forehand grip like most others unless he is chipping it back or blocking it back.

Both. I'm curious about everything Feds does on the court, and i also want to improve my game. Nuff 'said

Federer uses the spinning racquet waiting position where he can adjust to any grip from the spinning position.

This is actually an interesting question. I suppose this belongs in the Tips and Instructions forum, but what return grip do most 1h-bh players/pros use?

I found that waiting to return with a full eastern bh grip works best for me as its easier to switch from bh->fh grip than vice versa, and the 1h-bh requires a much more exact grip than the fh.

Of course none of this applies to Fed as he has much better timing and talent.

I wait in the eastern forehand grip because it's easy to block back balls for me even on the backhand side because of my flexibility.

The spinning racket waiting position? That is funnier than anything even dedans could come up with.

Like Lendl.

Totally unrelated, but I thought I'd share something I thought was funny. I ran into someone named Yvonne Wendel the other day. Her parents must have been tennis fans inthe '80's.
Kidding, actually, she was born before Lendl's pro career started.

Yup, just like any other joke. Do you like a lot of abuse or something?

Don't get yourself in trouble stealing mommy's Coors light. You better stick to something you know about, like Kool-Aid.

Rabbit, you've much too much class to duel with this clown that lusts over Federer every minute of his life. Ya, Fed is good, but GEEZ!!!!

Pusherman, thanks for the cold water in the face. It has been somewhat amusing, but you're right. I really shouldn't worry about an assclown who's made a career out of being a 2.5 player. I'm done.
