He orients the racquet in his hand because of the feel of that bump in his palm.
THANK YOU - maybe people will actually believe that now.

Sometimes I wonder if people out here even play tennis by some of the posts I see out here. As a player you just get used to holding a grip one way because it feel "right" to you hand - and then you just always play that way. And I spin the stick all the time and catch it on the same side without looking - easy. Just becomes habit - nothing more than that.
I'll get you a toe by this afternoon--with nail polish.
