I think a semi-western grip is most common at baseline... are there any good players that use a continental grip at baseline? I remember one of my coaches trying to teach me to use a continental grip.. I have no idea how to use that.. oh, and what grip do you use for serves, and what kind of serve do you produce? I'm using a continental grip to serve, and I find that I keep hitting the ball on the side, producing a slower, slice serve. I'm not sure if I should change my grip... or just keep trying to hit it flatter, with the grip I'm using.
