Few years ago, I used a LM Prestige MP and probably played some of my best tennis as a junior. I used to use a grip size 4 back then, and really thought my return of serve on the forehand was one my best shots. I just felt as if my timing on serves, was alot better overall. Recently I have switched to a fxp prestige grip 2 and now AG 200 grip 2 but for some reason I continue to struggle returning big serves. I used to love sending back them big bombs with interest, but lately I have become very defensive minded as I tend to shank and mistime alot of returns. The serve and one handed backhand are right up there, but ever since moving to smaller grips it seems my forehand has gone right out the window. My racket head speed on my forehand has gone, as I am subconciously aware of shanking yet another forehand out the court. I have also noticed there is alot more twisting of the racket in my hand. I hit with quite abit of spin with my forehand, hence the reason for switching to a smaller grip but my return game and offensive forehand have declined bigtime. It begs the question, is using a smaller grip abit overhyped on this board. I mean look at guys like Djokovic (grip 4 plus 2 over grips) and monfils also uses a pretty big grip yet they hit with a ton of spin. I dont really like building up grips by adding too many overgrips, so might just move to a grip 3 with a standard OG....Any thoughts??
