Hold it the way you hold a bird, "too tight the bird dies, too loose the bird flies".

For serve: the position of the pinky finger is almost off the handle -- half on the handle, half off the handle. The grip should be loose enough allowing pronation and whipping action. The idea is that at the time of contact it should firm up enough so that the expensive racket will not fall off your hand. It never fell from my hand!
