    to improve on groundstrokes, is it better to place lead tape at the 3 and 9 o'clock of the head ??? ( for more power )

    Weight at 3 & 9 will give your racquet more stability.

    There's not enough information to give a recommendation. What racquet are you using? Is it head-heavy? Head-light? What kind of improvement are you looking for? Power? Control? Stability?

    If you just want more power you should put the lead tape at 12. The lead tape at 3 & 9 gives you both more power (but only about half as much as putting it at 12) and more stability.
