    Is it better to extend your index finger up the racquet a little ways or keep all of your fingers together on a forehand? I have a SW forehand btw.

    A lot of people splay their fingers when using a Continental grip. I do and I've seen coaches advise doing this. I don't know if people do that with a SW grip, maybe you should try it and see what the results are. Good luck.

    I feel that for Continental, Eastern and Semi Western grip extended finger provides more support.
    That's how I do it.
    I see people that hit with full Western grip holding racquet with all fingers together.
