    Those of you having sweating palms... what do you use to help reduce the sweat (thereby the slipperiness) ... changing overgrips helps, but not always when playing in hot/humid conditions (esp in summer)

    I read this article on tennis(dot)com about Zeasorb (Super Absorbent Powder) and using it now.. but it is barely does the job.. its better than having none

    Assuming Rosin bag would work similar to Zeasorb...

    One of the guy's I play tennis with uses grip enhancer by Prince's .. but he does not recommend it as it has to applied before you play and it leaves lot of chalk-like layer, plus after an hour or so when it wears off, you cant use it again

    Those of you watching USO must've seen some players (incl. Serena) using some tube/gel... any idea which ones pro's use?

    If the Prince product is the blueish stuff I remember, you might try Industrial Formula Dry Grip. It really does the job.
