imo, lots of amateurs ruin their game trying to emulate pros when they (the amateurs ) don't have what it takes to play the pro game of today. Learn how to play with Eastern grips and enough spin to control your shots. if you can do this then maybe you will be able to move up to a pro style game. in the meantime most of us would win a lot more if we could play a fraction as smart as Chris Evert.
