So, for players who like to hug the baseline and take it on the rise, they should be using more Eastern grips? Or the other way around?
But wait, I thought Agassi uses a semi-western and likes to take the ball early and hug the baseline.
Man, I'm confusing myself here...
Not necessairly true, Federer has a relatively conservative grip and makes contact out in front of him pretty far.
