doesn't break down like a synthetic grip, usually plays a little better when it's broken in (IMO)
For me the firmer and bevel advantages are the main reasons to have leather grip. The first allow you to have looser grip and have the racquet swings more freely, while the second is very critical to 1 HBH - I believe every kind of stoke is also helped.
Anyway, to avoid blister you still can add overgrip and still have the benefit of the leather.
