    It is western. Most claycourters use full western. If you want some more discussion about this, try posting in the 'Tennis Tips/Instruction' section.

    Good question about Hewitt and A-Rod. I am pretty sure they use what I've heard described as a modified Western(call it what you will). Their FH grips are in between Semi and Full Western. I'm just telling you what I've heard from others who are supposed to be in the know. Can anyone else provide imput on this?

    I'm not a pro but what I see is it gives them the ability to swing as hard as they can, get extreme topspin and great pace. But I've seen it also done by players with SW and FW FH's. I think it comes down to personal preference and pracitce.
