Guys, I know that most of you said that Laver's height would be a disadvantage in the modern game, but what about his continental forehand? Would it also be a disadvantage? Also, I'm sure you'll all be thrilled to know that I've been grovin' my continental forehand at the courts and I'm preparing to play some matches with it an attempt to see how it fares against some very decent (4.5+) high school junior players I occasionally hit with. I'm no stranger to the grip and often use it to block back serves or hit squash shots on the run. I can play with all grips though my bread and butter is my semi-western, so I'm anxious to see how the continental works out. I'll keep you guys posted.
