I think everyone has a different way of finding their forehand and backhand groundstroke grips from the ready position. I hit semi-western forehand and semi-western 1hbh (yes, BevelDevil, it is semi-western, not extreme eastern because my index knuckle is completely over bevel 8, not the intersection between bevels 8 and 1). Semi-western forehand and semi-western 1hbh are actually the same grip, but despite this, I start in the ready position with my hand in a full western 'hammer' forehand grip. When the ball starts coming towards me, whether it's a forehand or a backhand, I grip the bottom bevel with my pinky and ring knuckles, and twist my middle and index knuckles one bevel over from western forehand to semi-western forehand, or, in other words, from full eastern 1hbh to semi-western 1hbh. To do this I'm using the off-hand held on the throat of the racket as an anchor so I can twist my grip without the racket moving through space instead of my hand moving over the racket. I guess I could just hold my racket in semi western forehand grip all the time, but I find that 'in-between' bevels where the bevel is at 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 or 11 o' clock are harder to 'find' than 'square-on' bevels like 12, 3, 6, or 9 o' clock. Because of this, I'd rather start with a 'square-on' bevel every time from the ready position, and twist into my 'in-between' bevel grip as I start my preparation - as I can locate my grip more accurately this way. Of course, if you're using a 'square-on' bevel as your grip you have no problem! I do find that, when I'm forced out too wide on my forehand, I'll often elect to slap a flat 'all-or-nothing' forehand cross-court with a continental grip as opposed to my normal semi-western grip. How I change grip from semi-western to continental whilst on the run (and I can't use the off hand to steady the racket whilst changing grips like with a running backhand) I have no idea - it just sort of naturally happens, and I figure you just momentarily drop and catch the racket with a different grip to do it. What is the system you guys use to find your grips on your groundstrokes?
