    Guys, don't think that I'm not sympathetic to the plight of this long lost grip (see the video posted in my signature).

    Does anyone have a more definitive explanation of what grip Laver used. It certainly was not eastern. Perhaps it was in between continental and eastern, but regardless, it would limit his ability to compete in the modern game.

    Kind regards,
    Chopin
