    It is meant to protect the racket. Put it where you drag your racket on the court.

    Sorry I just read that again and it appears to me to be condescending. That is not how I meant it to come out. Put the tape where you racket gets damaged is a better way to put it. But you should only use one strip unless you are overlapping the tape.

    10'o clock to the 2'o clock spot unless there is a specific zone where it gets it worse

    I actually tape from 8 o'clock to 4 o'clock since I started playing doubles, which requires a lot of low volley...so it depends on the game and how you play...
