It's clear that the semiwestern grip is the favourite forehand grip between TW forum posters, but it would be interesting to look more deeply into the reasons behind this favouritism. I mean, for example, it's not the same to be 6 feet tall and try to use a western grip than to be 5.5 feet tall and try to use a western grip; I stress, IT'S NOT THE SAME. Have you noticed the amount of new players on the WTA using western grips? A considerable amount, imo. Is this related to the average height of a woman pro? Imo, it is. Also, have you noticed that it's easier for young, not fully grown, players to use western grips? My point is, when people here ask for opinions regarding their grip selection, instead of just pointing out their style and gear, they have to say their height. Same for people saying that, in their opinion, grip "x" or "y" is better, because of this or that; please, include your height! Maybe, for some, this is not such a determining factor, but what nobody can't deny is that it's an important factor to be considered.
