    Just curious.

    I remember reading something about this awhile back, but I can't remember where.

    Some people have alleged over the years that Sampras did this but he actually didn't.

    Not sure who may have done it.

    Soderling plays with just an over grip over his custom molded handle.

    There was talk Nadal once used 2 over grips with nothing else, but I know he doesn't do this now, if he ever did it to begin with, maybe thats where you remember it from.

    Me!... well, |I have done frequently in the past. Especially as my ideal grip size falls just in between a 3 and 4. As for pros, I don't know.
