    He just chokes up the handle since he can't volley. It makes it so he can control the shot

    the grip just looks long, certainly looks longer than the rdx i tested...not sure what the deal is.
    also, a lot of players who use stretch racquets choke up on the grip, but not so much the players who use standard length.

    His hand looks really small to me. Look at his hand compared to his head.

    We can see only half of his hand length facing the camera. Palm "section" + half of the fingers are on our left side, coloured red (lighting).

    I'll ask Kim . . . Maybe his feet are small too.

    Maybe that's why they're not married, yet.

    You know, people with small hands wear small gloves.
