    What grip these players use?
    1. Richard Gasquet
    2. Martina Hingis
    3. Maria Sharapova
    4. Venus Williams

    For Gasquet, I want to know how to use that grip? It seems so good. Controlable.

    Any grip could be conrollable, it really depends on the skills of the player.
    Williams uses western, as does hingis, sharapova looks like she uses eastern (not sure at all) and I wouldn't even want to guess what gasquet uses.

    Sharapova uses an eastern forehand associated with the fact that when she finishes the stroke right, it finishes around shoulder height ala Pete Sampras & Linsday Davenport.
    As for her backhand she looks like a chicken winger so its continental/semiwestern(fh) like most of the girls do except Hingis she uses continental/eastern(fh). Venus is probably a chicken winger too.
