    Yeah... with a semi-western grip I started having trouble keeping the ball in the court as pace increased. Switched to the full western to get more topspin on the ball so it brings it down.

    The switch was easy for me, but that was because I was still developing my stroke... Also is western defined as if you have the racquet on the ground and pick it up, is that considered western? I've seen many tennis pros differ opinions on grip names.
