    Several pros play with the syn or real leather.. I'm thinking of playing with just Duratac or a leather grip. I know seveveral pros play without overgrip such as Calleri, Henman, Hewitt, and others.. Gasquet used to play with leather but I guess it was too harsh and now he uses an overgrip over leather..

    How do you know there's a leather (or synthetic) grip under his overgrip? Maybe, he wanted, even, more feel and, simply, followed my advice :cool:

    I don't use an overgrip. I use the Wilson Contour grip, which has a built in ridge that increases feel and traction. I usually change the grip when I have the racquet restrung.

    Do you change the replacement grip everytime you lose the tackiness? Must be very expensive.
