So, I was looking at old YouTube's of Chris in the 70's and 80's. What a simple straight back and slight low to high consistent stroke. Pinpoint accuracy and never a miss-hit. Effortless and I mean effortless stroke. Totally unlike the violent swings of today. No windshield wiper bs, how was she doing this? Aha, eastern grip. no loop, back and forth. So, last night I thought I would try it. At first the grip seemed horribly wrong compared to my below the equator full western grip. But after 5 minutes......I was nailing forehands crosscourt and down the line! I loved it. So simple, no effort, pretty much straight back and through. Go a little more low to high for nice topspin. So easy to meet the ball solidly and plow through. No wild western swings dissipating my energy. Never told my partner what I was doing. At the break he comments.....man, you are hitting so solid today. I asked him if he noticed any difference in my swing...yeah, it looks less violent. I'm going to stick with this for a while. We played again today and I am just on fire. Thanks Chrissy....I love you!
