My raquet stringer was explaining to me some differences in technique between early 90's players and todays. He shared that the face of the raquet is much more closed today on both sides and the swing path is more through the ball. For example on the backhand an extreme easter grip would be used. The contact point actually has the face point downward. He explained that the angle of the bounce causes the ball to clear the net. I haven't tried this yet but looked at some tape of davenport I had handy last night and it looks like she's doing this on the back hand. The whole discussion started becuase I was sharing that I couldn't keep the ball in with my babolat pure drive plus. He is a 6.0 player. Any comments on this?
