I am planning to make a bunch of changes to my game after February when tryouts are over and I'm wondering if my reasons are good enough for you, the TT forum's, views. I'm 5'5 inches tall just to let you know. My first change is a change in my forehand grip. I'm currently using an Eastern forehand grip to an extreme eastern or semi-western. When I want to hit the forehand motion the standard way (not WW) I feel like I have to have almost perfect timing and execution for the ball to go in. Another reason that I want to change it is because most of my opponents are big topspin hitters and hitting a forehand with my grip anywhere above the waist for me is a bit uncomfortable and I usually give a weak response to it. Second change that I'm thinking about is to go from an eastern backhand grip to the extreme eastern backhand grip. I also feel a lot of trouble when moderate topspin hitters play with me and hit to my backhand side with my current eastern backhand grip. I have to slice it a lot and even though I have a consistent slice now, don't think that a more advanced player won't take advantage of that. Third change is my forehand stance. I'm planning on moving from a closed to an open stance because I like how the open stance lets you recover more quickly, return balls, and how it's easier to hit high forehands with this stance.
