    What forehand grip does Lleyton Hewitt use? Is it a semiwestern?

    I think it's semi-western but I once saw a picture of him holding it western. I think.

    If he does use western (which I'm not sure of), you'd think he'd do better on clay and not have a Wimbledon title. Go figure.

    He doesnt adjust his grip to lower bounces and makes more errors. Off a flatter or lightly topspun ball he hits it pretty well off the forehand.

    Good for you! I myself will be spending a lot more time on court and a lot less time on here soon! Besides, I'm growing pretty weary of what seems to be a decreasing amount of well informed, thoughtful people and an increasing amount of trolls and unjustifiably arrogant people who like to share their ignorance with themselves! ;-)

    On a selfish level, I don't get much of out this board anymore. Occasionally i learn something in the racquets or strings section because I am not a gear head and I don't follow these things as closely....but then I'm not that interested in those things....much ado about nothing usually haha.
