    conventional wisdom is that you should try to hit tennis balls at waist height. however that is somewhat influenced by the grip. what would you say is the best height for each grip?

    I would say:

    conti: mid thigh (like in baseball)
    eastern: crotch to hip
    semi-western: belly button
    western: slightly below chest

    don't buy any of this. maybe when you assume and hold some conditions the same like stance and swingpath but no point doing that. Ie I find shoulder head level ball most simple to hit for my E fh.

    Player preference.
    I use a very strong SW and like lower thigh high balls the best.
