Very good. Being aware of and controlling the racquet face angle is critical on all levels of play. Usually players using the PVG's who want to move from the WF to the SW will do just that. They place their hand in the SW position correctly but revert back to the hand wrist angle of the W grip, thus opening up the racquet face. It is just the opposit for people moving from the EF to the SW, oops, right into the net.
