    Not sure it was posted before, but I never saw these kind of overgrip use (only half part of it).

    The pic was took in Doha's final

    Gasquet is known to be using a unique grip set up.
    He doesn't necessarily need the upper half because of his one handed backhand.

    He uses the full lenght of the grip, just wraps it over the buttcap several times, so there's less to cover the rest of the handle.

    there is another grip (overgrip?) under the blue tourna overgrip, also only halfway up the grip/handle.

    Yes leather from the butt cap to halfway....then he wraps a Tourna Grip - very often at events you will see him re- wrapping his grip during change overs and on the practice court.
